Michael T. Packard Is Wrong
The Deseret News published another "My View" extended public forum letter. This time it was a guy from Sandy named Michael T. Packard ranting against "socialized transportation". That right there should have let me know to keep moving to a new article. That and that it was a horrifyingly boring letter. But there was one point I wanted to address. He said "The times demand the highest caliber of fiscal stewardship". So why would Packard advocate removing public transportation options and lock families into their cars, unable to escape the highway scene while gas prices continue to climb and eat into the family budget? That doesn't sound like fiscal stewardship. That sounds like forcing families to pay too much for outdated technology because of the irrational fear that socialism will be snuck in through the back door of public transportation.
