This story in the Press-Enterprise caught my eye. A former City Councilman, Dom Betro, wrote an Op-Ed piece about the current Greyhound situation, and it's worth a read. However, what's even more interesting is the guy who wrote it. This is an eminent domain story, and Mr. Betro was the key player in a bit of eminent domain abuse a few years ago in the neighborhood around RCC. He even approvingly cites the Fox Theatre restoration downtown, which is the source of substantial controversy on the same issue, and yet here he is talking about the shameful abuse of the City's power to kick out the Hound. Strange how the tables turn, eh?

Also of note to transportation advocates, note how Betro uses the phrase "misfortune of not owning a car."
