It's always nice when traditional media covers issues that will materially affect our lives for the next half century (it doesn't happen as often as it should). This video of Elliott Davis is remarkable in that it quickly lays bare the complete lack of justification for the South County Connector project. It's always popular to hit on a big dollar amount, and the critique lacks any recognition of the most substantive issues involved. The project is in fact a bad idea at any cost. Davis may be on other hard-hitting news (such as this) tomorrow, but this piece shows that the ill-conceived road project may be facing a critical mass of opposition.
