commented on Is Vaping Really Safer Than Smoking?
"vaporizers that utilize oils deliver higher doses of THC than vaporizers that utilize dry plant."
You forgot to take into account that vaporizers that use oils burn an almost invisible amount of oil, while vapes that burn plant material use a bug hunk. One puff on either should be, give or take, about the same dose.

I really want to get behind this, and it seems like you have your head screwed on straight, Goldy, but I don't really get your format. It's a good rebuttal in a debate if that is what you're going for, but as a stand-alone piece it just seems argumentative and lacks nuts and bolts information about the different propositions.

commented on This Month in Bike Lane Blockages: Delivery Trucks, Armored Trucks, and Bollards
Even if parking enforcement gets there in time, the driver of the armored truck (who is always waiting inside) will just give him or her a nod and move along. They can still cite a vehicle that moves away, but they rarely do.
Another issue which is hard to illustrate is the unwritten rule that commercial trucks basically have immunity from parking enforcement. They park wherever they want, so making this a line in the sand might be difficult, but not impossible. It will take more than pointing out that it's illegal and dangerous.

/It will have an underground parking garage, which is complete insanity/
I understand that you might think that parking is unnecessary or "insane" in this busy world that we live in on the hill, but believe me, it is neither. Even as a non-car-owning resident, you still have the occasional get-together wherein you might need to allow for a small number of cars to park. But a lot of people still in fact own cars, and they need a place to put it when they're out there riding their bike and utilizing public transportation.
As a developer, the old mandate for parking in new residential structures was a drag. Now everyone is putting in more parking than is mandated, because they want to have it as an amenity. Keep on hating if you want.

The waterfront plan isn't even open for bids yet. They don't even have plan. I am kind of surprised to see a headline that says that they are scaling back the "plan". Duh-- that's exactly what the actual method here is. The "plan" is just a hodgepodge of crowdsourced ideas, no shit it's going to be incrementally scaled back. Please don't write a headline like this for every single stage of planning. Wait until they have a budget and bids for construction.
