Great quote - Regional transit plan

I was catching up on blogs and was reading how the Triangle (thats Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel HIll for you outsiders) can't come to agreement on a regional transit plan. This was a the great quote from Former Pittsburgh Mayor, Tom Murphy, comparing Europe to the issue at hand:

"How do 27 countries that speak 27 different languages that have been at war with each other repeatedly over the last 100 years figure out how to build a high-speed rail system from London to Moscow -- when you can't figure out how to build a mass transit system from Durham to Raleigh?"
