Politics Reality Check

I’ve had a friend in town this past week. He prides himself on being a hayseed who scoffs at the pretensions of big city ways. (He’s from Minnesota. His name is Dallas. He likes his peace and quiet.) He was struck by how urban Seattle seemed compared to the Twin Cities.
We were downtown this morning, and as we passed by the light rail construction, I said: “There’s our light rail. It was supposed to be up and running already. You guys have light rail.”
“What do you mean?”
“Well, all it does is go from downtown to the airport.”
