For a while now I’ve been hearing Walker’s proposal for a $2 bus fair would be the highest in the nation!

September 18th, 2007

But in today’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, viagra usa health I read:

The basic bus fare would be the highest for any major U.S. public transit system, equaling the charge for bus and rail transit riders in Chicago, New York and Philadelphia.

How could the fare be the “highest” if it equals the price at three other major cities?

    What this really means is that we’ve been undercharging all this time.

    Notice how the language has changed now that its their golden calf that is being speared. If it were, say, property taxes or income taxes or business taxes, they would have used “tied”.

    And Nick, they’re still undercharging.

    I make typos all the time on this site, Steve.

    Luckily for me, I have the means to correct them. ;)
