"But in Boston's defense, that project undid a snarl of highways to open up a most unique city's divided heart, on arguably the most vital road corridor in the world, I-95"
Interesting point except that I-95 loops around Boston. The road in question is I-93 which connects Boston to Canada and is mainly vital to Bostonians who want to go to Vermont. Fact checking is your friend.

The cell phone thing didn't make a difference in 2008. Don't get excited over leaks of internal polling because we have no idea if that is really what the poll said and, for that matter, if this is one of 7 polls this week...

14 - the crosswalk light doesn't change at all though and the other cars are slowing down even before the pedestrian is visible.

commented on The Polanski Petition
"The difficult, dark and ambiguous situation Sean Nelson described so beautifully, with Polanski roaming around outside U.S. borders continuing to film and continuing to fuck, living both with the harm he'd been done and the harm he'd done others including that poor girl, seemed infinitely preferable to setting off another one of our justified-outrage binges."
Yeah, never mind that he drugged and raped someone. I'm too busy waxing poetic about him having no punishment for his actions to worry about what that can mean for future victims of this crime.
And for those who say that the victim has forgiven him so we should, well that incentives harassing a victim until they're willing to make public statements that charges should be dropped.
