It’s time to end the 460 fiasco

The good folks at define the word fiasco as “a complete and ignominious failure.” A quick check of the word ignominious revealed its definition as being “marked by or attended with ignominy; discreditable; humiliating.” All that being the case, we feel at ease referring to the 460 saga as a complete and total fiasco.

And it should be brought to an immediate and inglorious end.

Enough taxpayer money has already been squandered, too many lives have already been disrupted, and the proposal currently on the table achieves far too little of what the project was originally intended to do to justify pursuing it any further.
