Has anyone else noticed a proliferation of news stories about Georgia DOT local road programs and about the T-SPLOST vote upcoming, while at the same time the Georgia Newspaper's Partnership Poll (of what citizens want the Georgia General Assembly to work on this year) put the "Roads and Bridges" category at 2 percent preference?

On the next poll, I'd like to see the newspapers change the question to spending billions of our T-SPLOST tax dollars on MARTA debt and more rapid transit. This ought to push the preference to a negative number.
