With all the controversy surrounding the construction of new rail lines in LA, it's fun to step back in time, all the way back to ancient days of yore (alright, 1991) and watch this video produced by the Los Angeles County Transportation Commission. The video shows the construction process for the Red Line, as well as its impact on traffic, businesses, and streets. So hopeful! So optimistic! "Cleaner environment! Greater mobility! A more prosperous future for our children!" Remember kids, loitering will not be tolerated.
