Oh the Horror!!!

I don't know Phoenix at all so don't have any opinion whether the light rail system there makes any sense (I mean, over and above my general feeling that they should be built everywhere), but I loved this from a hater:
I can't wait for all the complaints we'll hear once the temperature is 110 degrees . . . and the riders find no shade (has anyone looked at those useless wings provided for shade?) while waiting and, worst of all, will have to walk blocks to get where they want to go.
You might have to walk blocks!
Oh the horror!!!

Walking means burning calories, no wonder they have some thing to fear!

Sure, its over 100 degrees ... but, but, but ... its dry heat.

As opposed to cars, which are so cool to sit in after they've been sitting in a parking lot in the sun all day...

They said the same here in Houston: that nobody would ride light rail because nobody would want to walk in the heat and humidity to and from the stations.
