Traffic will worsen without Blue Boat

Re: Cutting Blue Boat ferry makes no sense, Letters, March 16, 2012.

I am in complete agreement with William Perry’s comments regarding the decision to cut the Blue Boat shuttle.

The only thing I would add is that it is “totally asinine” besides “beyond idiotic.”

The traffic from the western communities is continuously getting heavier every year, with no solution to the terrible traffic congestion.

Further more, the senior naval officers making the decision to cut the Blue Boat shuttle service cannot possibly be inhaling car exhausts daily while being stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic during rush hour, or they would have given far more thought to it.
