(I've been holding that back for months. Sorry.)
I did think the pictures that went along with the Tribune article were a bit unfair, though.
I was even going to do a blog post about it, saying something like "If I took a picture of an empty freeway at 2:00 p.m. and called it a waste, would you believe me?"
I had to laugh, then, when I pulled up UTA's blog today. They beat me to it:
Rarely have I seen such a direct rebuttal of a news story (though there was a pretty direct one in response to the preposterous 2News story about the parking garages) by a transit agency. Are we entering a new phase of the world in which UTA . . . sticks up for itself? Wild.
