Wow! The TTC TxDot had had a large turnout when they had the meeting before so they booked the Waco Convention Center-good thing because it was jammed with people. I only remember ONE person that spoke up FOR the TTC and there were elected officials as well as Hank Gilbert and Fred Head (who said he had spoken at Georgetown earlier before he came to Waco)  that spoke up against it. Some heart-wrenchers about land that has been in people's family for generations, cemeteries to be uprooted, old country church dismantled. Perry got lambasted by a lot of people of all political persuasions-the consensus, almost unanimous, is that we need to get him and every one of the people who voted IN the Texas Trans Corridor OUT. First shot out of the box will be to put a moratorium on it.

I'll have video and audio of this in the next day or so on a separate post.

It does warm my heart to go to these meetings because, first, they are full of people with pride for being Texans, who believe that what this government, which is supposed to serving *us* is doing, is just flat wrong.

P.S. Someone at the meeting mentioned that he was at the McGregor TTC meeting (uh, that is BUSH'S territory) and the people were UNANIMOUSLY against it. Ernie Casbeer had video taken which I hope to make internet video from. I think it's a HOOT that Bush's back yard doesn't like TTC.
