Cheese with that baloney?

Re: Oct. 10 editorial “CAMPO takes high road, addresses transportation needs.”

I read with bemusement the editorial praising the decision by the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization board to approve five more toll roads for the Austin area.

In another article (Oct. 10, “Combs: State surplus climbs to $8.5 billion”), we learn that the State of Texas is sitting on an $8.5 billion surplus with only $300 million earmarked for highways.

The Texas Department of Transportation and the CAMPO board keep claiming that there is not enough money for freeway construction. I smell some big fat rats that just helped themselves to a big chunk of Central Texas cheese.
