Because this issue is complex and the buses have never been the true source of the problem, I have to conclude that this proposal is a bad proposal. It is not addressing the core problem, it is attacking a symptom that is being erroneously highlighted by wrong-headed people, and it will set up a situation that could grow to be something much worse.
I think a lot of people see simplicity as the lack of clutter. And that’s not the case at all. True simplicity is, well, you just keep on going and going until you get to the point where you go, ‘Yeah, well, of course.’ Where there’s no rational alternative.
