SEPTA Sucks A Little Less

I missed this little piece of news on the SEPTA "Doomsday" front released on Friday. So, there's at least a one extra month reprieve, but hopefully I'll be driving by then.
Of course, it doesn't mean that anything will get resolved by then, as this quote indicates.
Steve Miskin, a spokesman for House Majority Leader Samuel H. Smith (R., Jefferson), said House Republicans still need to be convinced. "There still needs to be more information about why this money is needed and how we got to this point," Miskin said.
or this bold, if not surprising statement:
Many legislators, however, are balking at finding the extra money for transit systems they say don't benefit their rural districts.
I really don't know what to say to this, other than "Stop being so goddamn parochial, assholes." But, that's hardly persuasive.
Oh well, as always, we shall wait and see.
