Charles isn't a reporter, he's a mystical troll.

And calling him lazy is clearly racist.

The Stranger has gone full blown Fox News on Murray. The guy they don't like does something right? Clearly he's just lying like any other politician. And you'll need to prove a negative to show we're wrong, so we feel free to speculate along those lines for the rest of his term(s).

Perspectives. Priorities.

Yeah. Because a city that likes to think it's world class (not by a long shot, guys) should be stuck with a clearly dysfunctional, rarely available and completely overpriced cab system. Oh, and our pathetic public transit.

But yeah, keep thinking that because you're supporting a fcuked up system you're somehow standing up for the 'little guy.' And not the pigfcuking, corrupt as hell dispatch owners who grind their serfs into the ground while making the libertarian dbags at Uber/Lyft look like Mr. Rogers in comparison.

Bottom line: if you support the current system, you a a dolt.

>It will at best replace capacity demand as measured 5 years ago, in the fastest-growing city in America.

So at least we'll keep treading water. OK, I'll chalk that as a win. And it's not just workaday commuters that matter here. This is getting freight into and out of the Port. I'd like to protect those well paying union jobs if at all possible.

> Yes, it will "transform the landscape." Which will be appreciated primarily by people idling in rush-hour traffic on city streets.

... and those poor drones on the lower floors of downtown office buildings. And those stupid tourists on the (now much brighter) waterfront. Or really anybody who doesn't want to see a gash of a road on the face of our city.

> Yes, it will "unlock billions of dollars in property values," for the the handful of landlords who own property just behind today's viaduct.

Because there are no small business owners or property owners in all of downtown Seattle. Nobody who will benefit from having this eyesore removed but big landlords. I get ya... totally makes sense to keep this city fugly to spite big business. Let's take this to it's logical conclusion and stop all city services to those building owned by large corporations. Those rotting piles of garbage will sure show them!

Here's my thing... Boston's Big Dig wound up taking 10 years longer than originally forecast. It also ran over the original budget by about 520%. It was originally met by fierce criticism from locals as being unnecessary and profligate. But the political heavy hitters rammed it through despite the setbacks and protests. Fast forward to now the city friggin loves the thing. It's transformed the landscape, unlocked billions of dollars in property values and has kept Boston's transportation infrastructure in a position to keep up with demands.

How are we any different?

The only way Yellow cab can win a fight is if they have no competitors. Hence the attempt to legislate/litigate Uber out of existence.

Is it really that impossible for Yellow Cab/etc to make even the most marginal improvements in quality?

Building your own prison. Huh. Funny coming from the guy who apparently wants the poor locked away in their own, apparently poorly served, neighborhoods. The really hilarious thing is that it'll probably be too late before he realizes what side of the fence he's on.

It's all on the body. Everything else is fairly mediocre. Courtney will be out in the next week or two.

And I'm not saying you're trying to demean Virginia, but keep in mind they have more people than us, a higher household median income and better ranked universities.

You wanna feel better about yourself, jump over to WV.
