Great cartoon. Could have added the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus as riders. They don't exist either.

They should hook a left off of Nimitz and send the tracks right up King St. and end at City Hall, which I assume is part of the "civic center?" That way all the future mayors can keep an eye on the train as it clickty-clacks by and it would be close to the Alapai bus transit station, which coincidentally sits next to the "traffic management" center, that latter I have no clue what building is for, or what good comes from.

Great cartoon, showing what a sham Rail is. Going to the "Civic Center", a fake name to promote Rail, does nothing more than blow $ billions more.It is astounding how silent our "leaders" are in the face of sheer corruption, proving more than ever it is time to clean house.
