Re: MBTA comes to Warwick
I don’t think you’re off base, Don. I do think, however, there’s a whiff of Rhode Islandism in your thinking.
Rather than shrinking from the seepage of resources that increasing the freedom (of movement, in this case) of our citizens might entail, we ought to ponder why they’re inclined to seep in the first place. It may prove that increasing the opportunities for Rhode Islanders to snub the state for anything other than living in will increase the incentive for some internal reflection.
(In know, I know… naive. But I seem to recall a thing called hope that I brought with me from elsewhere.)
