The Latin Mass community of Old St. Mary's has been the lifeblood of that parish since it was reestablished in 1989. Even from a pragmatic standpoint, cancelling it would be folly, as people travel long distances to go there - that would not happen if the TLM were not offered.
Upvoted your points, Michael and Wilma. That being said, we must remember that a priest licitly offers the Holy Mass with the permission of his bishop. That probably make many afraid to "...just go ahead..." if they are the only one to do so in the diocese. Now...if a significant group in the diocese said "We're offering TLM"....... hmmmmm - might work
