I don’t care what people say about the crazy homeless people in SF. They all hate these bigots [protesting against newly-married couples] and started picking fights with all of them because they had nothing better to do and nothing to lose if they got arrested for assault/battery. It was awesomely amusing.
Meanwhile on I‑80, the Freeway Blogger asks passing drivers “If you think telling kids there’s no Santa Claus is hard…”
“Try telling them there’s no North Pole.”
And in discussion today, it occurred to me that even a substantial increase in public transit ridership might not cut congestion that much. Which is a failing of public transit more than anything else. The Bay area would benefit from more subways, more buses, and more ways to get people from their homes to existing public transit. Because if you have to drive to the BART station, you’ve got a pretty major problem. If you have to drive from BART to your final destination, too, it just isn’t worth it. More on that anon.
