Mayor Bing Says Detroit is Too Advanced

Mayor Dave Bing announced late last night that he was cancelling Detroit's planned light-rail line, preferring buses over light-rail service. Presumably, moving these funds around will enable him to offset most of the cuts that he has made in D-DOT budget in recent years.

I think it's ironic that at the same time Third World cities like Bogota, Columbia are moving away from buses in favor of light-rail, Mayor Bing wants to move Detroit away from light-rail to buses.

Mayor Bing is, essentially, making Detroit more of a Third World city than actual Third World cities.
