Boy, do I feel stupid. I made a mistake in a column and a blog post about the streetcar and mass transit. The thing is, I’m glad I was wrong. I wrote that CATS is run by the county, and thus the city could be forgiven for not taking the $12 million set aside for the streetcar and putting it to better use by improving CATS’ performance and efficiency. The trouble is that CATS is run by the city, a fact I could have easily known by doing what I told writers to do for years: doublecheck your facts. I apologize for the error. Now, the good news: since CATS is a city expense, and the city isn’t in as serious a financial pickle as the county, there’s a bit more hope for a better local transit system. Only a bit, but hey ...
