In a blog posted Monday on Huff Post Teen, Beverly Hills High School junior Danny Licht writes that his hometown and school district should not spend "copious amounts of money to delay the improvement of public transit."
The piece, titled "Beverly Hills, Let the Subway Go," argues that the Westside Subway Extension, which calls for tunneling under BHHS, is inevitable and should be completed for the greater good:
Besides the fact that the subway extension is in the best interest for countless Angelenos, fighting Metro is expensive and will probably be fruitless. The unofficial Beverly Hills way, it is said, is to sue. And suing drains all involved of money and can result in a war of attrition, which my school, despite its fancy name, cannot afford. It also, in effect, drives up the cost of the sued party's service, public transit in this case, which many of its customers cannot afford.
