Re: “Against Light Rail,” Charles Graham’s letter.
Editor:
Charles Graham posed the question that if I were a resident of St. Petersburg, “would I take a train from St. Petersburg to Clearwater?” and vice versa from Clearwater to St. Petersburg.

My answer is “yes” if one of the following applied to me:

If I were of a certain age; if I were physically handicapped; if I were blind; if I were deaf (inability to hear sirens); if I could not afford a vehicle; if I were prohibited from driving by law; if I wanted to avoid the rush hour.

I would respond “yes” if at least one of the following were enacted by the rail company: If the train always left on time because the conductor would be fined for every minute late (as in France); if weekly or monthly passes were issued at a discount rate; if the light rail gave a smooth ride; if the rail had the right of way at all times; if the train stops were coordinated with the current bus system.
