Re: Washington State Ferry System

For some reason, the Federal Government doesn't subsidize local ferry services as much as they do light rail, subway and bus transit systems. Seems they'd rather dig a tunnel for a couple of billion vs far less $ for construction subsidies for a boat. I wonder if that has to do with long term cost?...

So, Rittenhouse got off. Given the circumstances and the laws in this country, this was bound to be the result. If I were on the jury, I would have reluctantly voted to acquit. However, I think there is something very wrong where mommy lets an underage punk kid have an AR-15 and drives him to a rio...
