    When Portland, OR extended its light rail system to its eastern suburbs, those towns were transformed from rural small towns to booming suburbs.  Later, the inhabitants of the 'burbs tried to exempt themselves from the tax that paid for the commuter line in the first place.  Maybe you don't like sprawl.  I don't.  But that's not what bothers them.  They want the goodies, but they don't want to pay for them.  That attitude is all too common in our state.
