Opinions: Light-rail: Fail

The 20-mile, $1.4 billion light-rail system is great in theory, right?

We're sure the bigwigs behind it were thinking a mass transit system would put Arizona on the map as a booming metropolis, but here in Arizona we build out, not up, and a light-rail system just doesn't make sense.

Arizona is no New York — and we don't want it to be. Traditionally, our state has been the state of farmers, ranchers and acre lots for large families and their several pets. Our sprawling structures, backyard swimming pools and palm trees make the Valley an oasis in this desert, and shooting a light-rail through its heart will spoil the illusion.
