I am having a hard time buying what these politicians are selling.
Um, let me spell it out for all Virginia Beach residents: you are getting light rail whether you want it or not. It doesn't matter what the results are of the referendum are this fall. As this back door deal illustrates, the deal is done.
This reminds me of the Dell commercial:
Except this time it is: Dude, you are totally getting a light rail.
Welcome to the wonderful world of tax supported light rail, Virginia Beach. You will "love" it as much as Norfolk does.
