Chiming in here belatedly to say that, whatever doubts we may have had about Cliff Mass, dilettante transportation planner, have fully been dispelled by Mr. Mass's weighing in @44. Apparently, Mr. Mass is not a PR expert either, as in, he's not familiar with the PR adage, "If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging."
Just this one sentence here: "Grid locked traffic is bad for the environment, emitting more carbon into the atmosphere and creating air pollution." These are the words of someone who has never given any serious thought to transportation issues and has no idea what they're talking about. Either that or these are the words of someone who has
given serious thought to these issues but has instead decided to disingenuously demagogue them.
Oh, and instead of being distracted by Charles Mudede's supposed bias against him, let me refer to the commenters at Seattle Transit Blog
, most of whom were similarly puzzled by Cliff Mass's blog post.
