From what I understand, the economic stimulus bill that Congress passed last week will provide ample funding for things like road construction, bridge repair and public transportation. I’d be thrilled to see an expansion of Chicago’s train lines, but would not be thrilled to see local officials (or politically connected contractors) skimming off the top. A comprehensive rail system connecting neighborhoods throughout the city? That’s good. Local precinct captains strutting around in fur coats? That’s bad.
