Actually (and at the risk of getting this thread locked -- sorry!), I could not disagree more. The Palmetto station was and is a godsend to those of us in NW Miami-Dade and even SW Broward. It allows you to easily drive to the train station on the Palmetto Expwy. The surrounding area -- Medley -- may be the middle of nowhere, but the Palmetto itself, as a major north south limited access highway, certainly isn't.
The Palmetto station was the smartest thing done to Metrorail since it opened. Certainly much more than the Earlington Heights/MIC boondoggle.
