Seattle's Monorail May Start Flying Again
"Over the heads of the planners, the politicians and the business leaders, Seattle residents have come up with a plan, designed a system and then funded it -- in three separate referendums. Its an amazing act of civic chutzpah. The projects eventual success or failure bears watching, because it raises the question of whether citizens can play the game of infrastructure development more directly, and not just give thumbs up or down to what the experts come up with."
