That's great for the charities...really it is. But I highly doubt people made extra trips to "donate" money. I think what this means is the Greenway makes $226,000 a day. Anybody else see a problem with this?

Wonder how much the Dulles Toll Road makes a day...and yet they insist on hiking up the rates over and over to pay for the new Metro line. And we keep paying it.
