Apr 20 stinky commented on The Heart of Whiteness: Ijeoma Oluo Interviews Rachel Dolezal, the White Woman Who Identifies as Black.
The statement that Washington state is almost 90% white is puzzling to me - the actual number was, according to 2010 census data, well under 80%, is declining rapidly, and hasn't been in the 90% range for more than 25 years. That's obviously not core to the story, but it's regrettable that the people reading the article who don't know Washington state will carry that false fact away with them.
Mar 20 stinky commented on Today in Hard-hitting Investigative Journalism: Is that Beer Really a Pint?.
That's great. Here in Vancouver, researchers from the Sun found much less reassuring results. Of course, a pint here is an imperial pint, which is 20oz - as God intended.…

Jan 6 stinky commented on Can Portlandia Be Funny In the Age of Trump?.
Dunno. Nothing I've seen on that show has dampened my enthusiasm for doing something like taking a workshop on breaking down a pig or blow a whistle at motorists while I ride my bike. Portland folk in that demographic get mocked because they are interesting. If they weren't, the show would not work.

PEOTUS mocking a disabled reporter as a way of defeating the conversation is about as far from sketch comedy as any thing I can imagine. That comparison seems just about random.
Jan 6 stinky commented on Link's Ridership Continues to Surge.
I fear that the party is over before the band is back from their first break - PEOTUS has come out against federal support for transit projects and for using the highway trust fund for projects other than highways. These are positions that play well to his rural base.

Vancouver BC has a similar reality at the provincial level (though not so much at federal) - leadership that plays to a rural base that doesn't want to be taxed to move city folk around other than on highways. Loves them a shiny new bridge, though. The recent limited-scope transit levy referendum failed hard even though it was just the served lower mainland region that would be taxed for it. It's hard to see how what's quite frankly at best a mediocre system by international standards will be expanded. That means overcrowded, polluting, noisy diesel buses on into the future. Blech!
Oct 5, 2016 stinky commented on Auto Industry: Why Build a High-Speed Train Line Between Vancouver and Seattle When You Could Have More Cars?.
One of the promises of autonomous vehicles is that they will take less lane space than human-piloted vehicles. Ideally, they will travel very close together, gaining fuel efficiency by drafting.

There is nothing that says that the autonomous vehicles using the lane can't include autonomous buses.
