More people in cars?

Today's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editorializes on local transportation issues.
Yet during a meeting with the Editorial Board Tuesday, [Milwaukee County Exectutive Scott] Walker said he would like to grow the local economy enough so lower-income people don't have to rely on transit and could instead afford to buy cars if they chose.

While we understand what Walker was getting at, those kinds of comments unfortunately sound like someone who thinks of rapid transit more as an urban albatross than a tool for regional economic growth.

I'd be more confident they understood Mr. Walker if they understood the meaning of the term rapid transit.

Update: Et tu Patrick McIlheran?
