    What exactly could DOT learn from the DOE on dealing with Community Boards based on that article? I’m not getting it.

  • @dizzle2:disqus :
    Well, if anything, it’s an example of how to disregard an insane community board. I found nothing that they said (as quoted in the article) to be reasonable. The DOT often capitulates to such opinions. The DOE, I bet, is too cash-strapped to bother to listen.

    Hmm, as an alternative, how about “Running over Ray Kelly with a steamroller” as a litmus test?
