Jim Durbin's Argument Against Public Transportation

Right-wing blogger Jim Durbin made a really interesting argument this morning against Proposition A, the ballot initiative to restore and expand public transporation in the St. Louis region with a 1/2 of 1% sales tax. Apparently, he used to run 6 miles every day to get to his first job, so he knows that the people who say they rely on Metro to get to work just aren't trying hard enough. You can watch the argument here:

By the way, if you'd like to hear a serious discussion about the merits of the proposal, check out this debate between Chesterfield Mayor John Nations and Tom Sullivan.
