Subject: [CR]alternative transportation=pork barrel???

this morning on cnn saturday there was a report on where the money that should be used for infrastucture has been used on "pork barrel" projects then cnn cited the light rail and bike lanes in minneapolis as wasted money that should be used on roadways the last qoute by the reporter went something like this at the end of the day these porjects do not address our transportation issues i could not find the video on cnn this morning but it was aired about 7:15a cst and im sure will be aired again

as a cycler and a bicycle as transportationo advocate i would urge everyone to not only email cnn and express yr concerns about such reporting but your local and national bicycle advocacy organizations to take this on this was a very blatant and direct attack towards anything other than cars as a serious means of transportation quite frankly i could not believe what i was hearing ive expressed my concerns and disbelief at such reporting please take the time to do so yrself peace on the streets
