  1. Being the state capital is a huge factor in an otherwise slower growing region. State government and attendant entities like consulting and law firms are mostly self-perpetuating beasts that enjoy a protected revenue stream drawn from the entire state. Those cities are recession proof and their core industry can't be lured away to another place. Add in that state capitals are often the site of a state-funded university - with a medical school and hospital - and you have a good basis for growth, or at least stability.
  2. Does anyone know where RTA is on replacing the existing light rail cars? All the good discussion about new routes and transit oriented development, or tax plans for operating revenue, seem to assume that there will be new reliable transit cars coming from somewhere to replace the 1980-vintage ones now being used.
  3. Could you please explain the abbreviations CPE and ULCC? Thanks
