UTA, Put up or shut up? Shut up.
Last week, the Utah Transit Authority refused to release the data that would or would not back up its claim that the downtown free-fare bus zone, which it wanted to dump, was encouraging crime on its system:
UTA won't discuss its crime data, citing records dispute The Salt Lake Tribune
The Editorial We weren't buying it. We told UTA to put up or shut up:
UTA must open up: Denying data access not appropriate Salt Lake Tribune Editorial
Today, they shut up:
UTA drops efforts to end Free Fare Zone The Salt Lake Tribune
Well. There it is, then.
If they settle the NFL referee lockout in the next couple of days, we will take credit for that, too.
