Off the Rails
A story on today's front page discusses how the Mineta Transportation Institute has disinvited one of its members from a Commonwealth Club event. The member, Mountain View city councilman Greg Perry, was booted, according to some, because of his opposition to bringing BART to Silicon Valley.
What caught my eye was the name 'Mineta Transportation Institute'. When you name yourself after the bone-headed secretary of transportation, it should not come as a surprise to publicly humiliate yourselves.
