  3. Tory Gattis has a couple of posts on his blog about shortsighted political opposition to the University rail line allignment. http://houstonstrategies.blogspot.com/ Christof Spieler, who has a great blog about transportation, has some great comments, along with some good maps to make his point. http://www.ctchouston.org/blogs/christof/2006/02/09/23/ There are apparently some people hoping to derail the University Line before it even gets started.
