In the Wake of DOT Commissioner Joe Marie

State Transportation Commissioner Joe Marie, a staunch proponent of the nine-mile, $600 million, New Britian-Hartford busway, is gone.
An interesting story on the front page of today's Hartford Courant ( tells the tale with a few juicy details, but I'm sure there is much more to it than that. Marie leaving now is especially intriguing given that Marie would certainly have been a goner anyway when Gov. Jodi Rell departs early next year and a new governor takes her place. What was the rush to dump him now?
Of more interest locally, I'm wondering what it means for mass transit in Connecticut, especially in our little corner.
