The Merc reports that Athertonians are yet again uniting the Peninsula, specifically by making everyone else hate them. The crime this time? Opposing the Caltrain electrification project that's beloved by everyone, especially environmentalists:
Mayor Rick DeGolia wrote that the railroad "is locked into an old technology and 20th century thinking", but then undermined his modern view by calling the line "Cal Train", a outdated spelling/spacing that is basically like saying you're going to see your favorite "base ball squadron". Welcome to 2016, Rick! The rest of us would like to ride faster/more frequent trains and not breathe diesel particulates. Is that OK with you?
