Re "Kings' payment an ante on streetcars," (Editorials, Feb. 4): Why streetcars? Pavement will have to be torn up to lay track, and if the trolleys don't work, torn up again. Use buses instead.

Paint them to look like trolleys if you wish, or make them electric, but don't disturb traffic by tearing up streets to lay track that may not be used in future years.
