notes on government, sports and popular culture
The N&O conducts a poll
on the Triangle's proposed rail system.
Pollster Del Ali says build it and they will ride:
"When people actually see it physically drive by it, I think the enthusiasm should increase."
State Sen. Russell Capps has a different view:
"That's really surprising, because I haven't talked to anybody who says they're for it. In fact, everybody is concerned with the fact that we're going to have another boondoggle that's going to require more and more tax money, and nobody's going to use it."
