That is true, if more are satasfyed with the situation the way it is, we are
wasting time here.  However if there are more unsatasfyed, then we have to
look at how we handled this stuff in the past, so we are not taken for a
total fool again.

Well, sounds like there is a division on this in the blind community again!
Now I just wonder how many in the Tallahassee area that is in the blind
community that is happy with the bus system like it is going to be and How
many does not like it the way it is going to be? This is going to make the
difference in the in pack on weather change happens or not. Just more
thoughts.

The bus system is ok with me also. I am not saying it can't be improved. In
order to make things better there must be change. It would seem to me people
do not like change.

It takes me about an hour to get from my apartment to the Lighthouse on
Cedar Center cort. I have not yet seen any time table for the NOVA 2010 plan
so I would have a compairson..
