SoundRunner is not a good use of port money

Regarding the story, “SoundRunner will get $340K subsidy in 2012” (page A13, Dec. 9 Herald): $700,000 a year to operate SoundRunner?

High average ridership: 29 per day. Let’s see, that is $24,137.93 per rider per year.

Does anyone else not think this is insane?

I guess in this entitlement society, it is ok for everyone to pay for a few.

Count my vote against.
