Read this blog post (one of my regular reads) and thought of the local (Nashville) transit issue. A very typical 35 to 60 year old in my neighborhood would...
1. Strongly favor affordable housing yet fight tooth and nail against even the slightest increase in density in our neighborhood.
2. Oppose parental choice in education, yet drive their own children to a different zoned school.
It's going to hard to 'sell' the mayor's transit plan and I don't expect rational argument to carry the day. I'm curious to see how the PR firm approaches the issue.
