commented on Link's Ridership Continues to Surge
How many of these were new riders and how many simply came from the bus routes that were discontinued/truncated to boost LRT numbers? That's the number that really matters.

commented on Seattle Voted For ST3 Because the City Stopped Moving: Congestion Up 35 Percent
But, but, but....Scott Kubly pinkie-sweared that stupid fucking road diets wouldn't mess up traffic. He even promised (falsely, as it turns out) that it'd be OK because fewer people are driving. I guess that's what you have a faith-based traffic plan that refuses to acknowledge the ongoing (and future reality) of cars.
Color me shocked.

Yes, let's add a ton of new "Innovation District" high-tech office buildings to one of the last economically diverse and affordable neighborhoods in Seattle. After all, that worked out so well for the former working class businesses and residents in South Lake Union.

Dream on - one week of Republican negative ads would have had most 'Muricans convinced Sanders is the bastard love child of Josef Stalin and Hugo Chavez.

commented on Long Live the War on Cars: Regional Leaders Call for More Mass Transit as City Unveils Plans to Lower Speed Limits
The war on cars is a war on people - in Seattle, the 60 or so percent of them who commute to work in SOV's or carpools, and the other 20 or so percent who use them after they get home from work on their hour-long bus ride to go shopping, pick their kids up from practice, etc etc etc.
Funny thing is - when you make war on people in how they go about their day-to-day lives, they tend to get a bit hostile about it. So fuck you and your war on cars.
