The LA Times really let Metro have it in a weekend editorial about their TAP system, a multi-year $100 million-plus project that still hasn't seen full realization yet. Times writers used words and phrases such as disheartening, embarrassed, headaches, bad planning, dumb, complicated, insecure, and even a "D'oh!", to explain their position on the Transit Access Pass system, which someday should allow riders to seamlessly travel between modes of transit and different agency services throughout L.A. County.

The opinion comes after the Daily News reported on the TAP boondoggle.
