MBTA disaster could prove a well-disguised blessing
Patriot Ledger - 02/21/2015
The bacchanal of charges, counter charges, accusations, and recriminations concerning the MBTA’s highlight-reel non-performance over the last several weeks is redundant. In sum, you would be right to conclude that a lot of people had a lot of years to get a job done and failed to do it, and that failure haunts the region in numerous ways.
Of course the public is told that this crisis is the equivalent of a “Sputnik moment”, a blessing in disguise, a wake-up call for elected officials to redouble their efforts to reimagine and modernize the MBTA.
