Some Friends of Unfair Park have asked today why the current debate over the Trinity Parkway hasn't received any substantial coverage in Dallas' Only Daily. This sneak peek at tomorrow's editorial page, courtesy Dallas Morning Views, should provide at least part of your answer:
TRINITY – Building on our editorial last month where we faulted Angela Hunt for simply railing against the project without offering any alternatives (we called this irresponsible), we respond to her formal kick off of the referendum campaign this week with a second editorial spelling out the fact that there really are no meaningful alternatives re the road alignment. Mike on behalf of the editorial board.
So, there ya go. But last we looked, there was at least one alternative: Uh...don't build it? Hey, but at least we have a reason to look forward to tomorrow's paper. --Robert Wilonsky
