Love Corroon, but Europe?

We come to this post with admitted biases: We think most foreign travel by local officials is a waste of taxpayer money. We also think that Peter Corroon is a man of integrity. So, what to think about Corroon's trip to Europe with UTA reps and the mayors of Bountiful and Ogden? And not just any old Europe, but Vienna, Munich, Zurich, Nice, Bordeaux, Monaco, and Paris.

Corroon at least had a facial excuse for going, unlike the China 13 legislators two years ago, whose most articulate justification for traveling to The Middle Kingdom was "Uh . . . ." But come on. In this budget crisis? With no proposals submitted yet by UTA? You couldn't look at some video or talk with experts?

We can buy some UTA reps going; they will have to come up with the ideas. But the mayors? You're not public transportation designers. We call . . . BooooooonDOGGLE!
