That's some leadership, eh?

HoustonTraffic%20062507.jpgIt has not been a good week for local leadership. After Harris County Commissioners endorsed perfectly sensible congestion pricing for the overloaded Westpark Tollway -- which is overloaded primarily because the local transit authority undermined the size of the project when it was built -- the Commissioners revoked the sensible policy because some citizens yelled loud who didn't want to pay the higher toll during rush hour or be inconvenienced by traveling the tollway at a time other than rush hour.

My goodness. Why didn't County Commissioners simply call Houston's urban policy wonk, Tory Gattis, to sort all this out in the first place?
