Am I screwed or is there another one coming along soon? If there isn't, am I stuck in Columbus for the evening? If I drive up there, I can come and go as I please. If I want to stay late, I can do that. If I want to leave early, I can do that. If I want to stop on the way home or going there, I can do that too.
I like local light rail too -- I just think we're going to eventually hit the point where the difference between Cincinnati / Suburbs / Dayton starts to become pretty irrelevant and it turns into one giant "local" light rail system.
