When will we ever learn?

Yet another special commission issues a report on the sad state of Massachusetts infrastructure and says the tab for inaction is mounting. Want to bet it receives the same fate as all the others?

No one wants to pay higher gas taxes or shell out more for what passes as service on the MBTA. But who wants to pay when a giant pothole eats the suspension or get stranded somewhere because the T shuts down?

Legislators say they understand the problem. But understanding is not the same as doing something. Even Deval Patrick has given up.

So here's a challenge: how are people going to get to casinos being held out as hope for the Massachusetts economy?

But aren't we living in a Democratic nirvana? They've controlled everything here for many years, Bacon hill is very one sided. I know, you can blame the Republicans. Should we just keep re-electing apparently ineffectual Democrats? They're so incompetent they can barely keep themselves out of jail (some can't even do that).
