Capitol Hill is getting one and the city is paying for it. The city's second street car line is going to start at Union Station and run through first Hill before craping out at the Capitol Hill light rail station. But it's kinda hard to tell from this post at CHS if Tom Rasmussen is fer it or agin' it.
Councilmember Tom Rasmussen voiced his opposition to the cost of streetcars but voted for the bill. Before voting, Rasmussen called the project "another camel under the tent" toward completing a complete streetcar system in the city.
Wha-huh, Tom? Is completing a complete streetcar system a good thing or bad thing or a camel? More importantly: we can't call the thing "SLUT." That name is taken, of course, and it's also site-specific. So what are we going to call this thing?
