Thanks for going to the d. (d-dot) open house and for this great report.

This is not your great grandpa's streetcar. It moves in near-silence and little vibration. If a streetcar, for example, replaces the 92 bus, residents all along the route will have an improved quality of life, because buses are loud, they rattle windows on the route, and they smell.

Congratulations to d. for this visionary plan. I hope it goes into effect. Congratulations as well for a very good design of a community meeting. Instead of one presentation and a "question-answer" period that would have only served as a forum for speeches from the neighbors, this meeting had lots of brochures and boards, d. representatives available to answer questions individually at each set of boards, and a real opportunity for discussion rather than confrontation.

If you hear about another meeting on street cars, make time to attend. You'll find it informative and enjoyable.
