Mike James supports restoring the Waterfront Streetcar

Mike James, the former News Anchor/Reporter at KING-TV, posted on Facebook:

I'm still ticked that the waterfront streetcar, a realized dream of the late George Benson, was big-footed off the tracks by the Sculpture Park construction, apparently never to return.
In fact, much as I enjoy the park, I never go there without remembering that the streetcar, years later, is still mothballed - or dead, depending on my state of despair/hope.
So, before it's too late, let's bring it back with the new waterfront/tunnel scheme; if it's good enough for Lake Union/Westlake, it's good enough for the waterfront.
I just bought a couple of T-shirts to keep hope alive.
