commented on Vote "Approved" on ST3 on November 8!
I voted no solely because of 12. I've voted yes on every other mass transit system (including the monorail - what was it? 3 times? - but this one seems to mainly connect suburbs to other suburbs. I just don't think we'll get another chance at light rail after we pay for this one so it's important that it's useful.

"But in Boston's defense, that project undid a snarl of highways to open up a most unique city's divided heart, on arguably the most vital road corridor in the world, I-95"
Interesting point except that I-95 loops around Boston. The road in question is I-93 which connects Boston to Canada and is mainly vital to Bostonians who want to go to Vermont. Fact checking is your friend.

The cell phone thing didn't make a difference in 2008. Don't get excited over leaks of internal polling because we have no idea if that is really what the poll said and, for that matter, if this is one of 7 polls this week...

14 - the crosswalk light doesn't change at all though and the other cars are slowing down even before the pedestrian is visible.
