The dilemma for KRM supporters in Caledonia

I find it interesting that the same people that want to dip into my pocket for a train that will cost tens of millions a year just to go back and forth from Kenosha to Milwaukee do not want the Village of Caledonia to spend $4,000 to hear from the opposing side.

Lets be honest here…we have all heard “how wonderful this train will be to our community!” And that “the train will bring economic growth!” I think it is time we hear from a qualified person on the opposing side.

All I keep hearing in my head during these KRM presentations from SEWRPC and TransitNOW is:

Monorail - The Simpsons

If you didn’t catch Marge and Bart’s comments at the end I have included the lyrics here and highlighted my favorite part.

Lyle Lanley: Well, sir, there's nothing on earth Like a genuine, Bona fide, Electrified, Six-car Monorail! What'd I say?

Ned Flanders: Monorail!

Lyle Lanley: What's it called?

Patty+Selma: Monorail!

Lyle Lanley: That's right! Monorail!

[crowd chants `Monorail' softly and rhythmically]

Miss Hoover: I hear those things are awfully loud...

Lyle Lanley: It glides as softly as a cloud.

Apu: Is there a chance the track could bend?

Lyle Lanley: Not on your life, my Hindu friend.

Barney: What about us brain-dead slobs?

Lyle Lanley: You'll be given cushy jobs.

Abe: Were you sent here by the devil?

Lyle Lanley: No, good sir, I'm on the level.

Wiggum: The ring came off my pudding can.

Lyle Lanley: Take my pen knife, my good man. I swear it's Springfield's only choice... Throw up your hands and raise your voice!

All: Monorail!

Lyle Lanley: What's it called?

All: Monorail!

Lyle Lanley: Once again...

All: Monorail!

Marge: But Main Street's still all cracked and broken...

Bart: Sorry, Mom, the mob has spoken!

All: Monorail! Monorail! Monorail!

[big finish] Monorail!

Homer: Mono... D'oh!
