Slim pickings, so let me get off topic a little. My personal opinion on the Republican Nomination, looking at just the math - Rick Santorum has to win California to force the nomination to the convention, and Romney has to win California to prevent it. None of the other primaries or caucases matter anymore (except in how they influence California) nor do Paul or Gingrinch. Oh, and Santorum's odds of winning California are between slim and none.
- The Montgomery County T&E committee voted to put the Capital Crescent Trail onroad and out of the tunnel, and the full council agreed a week later. Narrowing the ROW in the tunnel for the Purple Line, so as to keep the trail next it it is not off the table, but MTA recommends against it. "The Council will take a final vote on the proposed budget this May. If this decision stands, and if the Purple Line holds to the schedule for a construction start in 2016, then we will lose trail access through the Bethesda Tunnel. If the Purple Line has a significant slip in schedule, as appears increasingly likely given the state and federal transportation budget issues, then opportunities may present themselves to salvage the situation, in particular the "Alternative D" - [Platform under a new Air Rights Building with Trail in the Tunnel]."
- The House rejects the Senate's Transportation bill.
