Your blog is the best source of information on transit projects in the Salt Lake area. I have followed it for some time and I am impressed. I have a question for you. How will the mid Jordan line impact the Daybreak community once it is up and running? I would like to hear your opinion on it as I would like to write a post on it soon at my blog: Daybreak Today - http://daybreaktoday.blogspot.com
