If they can get it started again, I'm sure it will get just far enough to argue they have to finish whatever the cost. Two years wasn't enough time to compare the tunnel and surface option on cost and ability to finish? Makes sense to make sure to keep the legal options open, but not at the exclusion of re-evaluating whether the tunnel will be finished. Having lived in Boston during the big dig, I hope they leveraged some learning from that project.

State income tax makes sense. Who in the state legislature is prepared to propose it? Maybe move beyond the Gates as big guy storyline to the real meat of this story.
