That explains what happened to all the commenters on the forum when the C added themselves to the Facebook community. Must've been an epidemic...8P'

I found the article you posted regarding BRT in Portland. Although it can be interpreted as ignorance to Vancouver's BRT, laying claim to being the first in the region, it is inaccurate except that it might be the first time the Powell-Division line has had BRT. Not sure if we can pull up the history of TriMet's once-failed articulated lines they possessed prior to LRT to verify my suspicion.

Maybe TriMet has finally accepted the fact that LRT is too expensive to maintain and less effective, given all the down times they've faced in recent years.

Three days ago, he made it clear he wanted some changes made.

Same scenario...

would you think it be wrong if the business owner refuses his business just because of who he is because they felt he should have been convicted?

Getting back to the Indiana law which has put everyone into a tailspin here in the forum (and everywhere else), I was just thinking (yeah, I know what yer thinkin')...

The RFRA was intended to protect the religious rights of business owners. That we can all agree on...but say someone like George Zimmerman walks into your store and is legally packing...

would you think it be wrong if the business owner refuses his business because of their religious belief concerning one of the ten commandments..."thou shalt not kill???"

On the local news station this morning, the reporters were mentioning a sudden surge relocations to Portland in the high-tech electronics industry. Will the Portland metro valley end up like Silicon Valley??? Will it become too expensive to live anywhere in the Metro area??? Will blows to the financial markets cause the potential for higher unemployment some time in the future???

Hmm...

Let's hope these new businesses in the region (Clark County, too) can keep the people working.

It's never about the riders, roger. It's always about increasing population density in order to gain more dinero in the form of grants/tax dollars, fees and higher fares for pipe dreams. When ridership drops, cuts are made in an attempt to avoid going under and they're always looking to DC for financial gains. Nobody wants to be in debt but they all want more. For TriMet, Portland got too big for its britches...yet they could manage a bridge for an electric mini choo choo and bicyclists in order to keep their pipe dream going. They have no choice, now. Improvements such as the bridge are not considered improvements to those who do not utilize MAX and are considered a waste of taxpayer dollars.

C-Tran better do a 10-year study on the Leaf if they have any ideas of adding one on Mill Plain as well as one up Hwy 99. If ridership numbers don't improve...

Oh well...we all know it's all about aesthetics, pipe dreams and of course...money.

I call it my "nanner nanner nanner" emoticon and yes, it's an 8 and a P side by side. Regarding the millennials...they are our future. Maybe they need to step up to the plate and throw their hats into the ring rather than worry about whether or not we've flipped our lids in the political world. If not, the political battles will only increase in intensity. Hopefully it won't be like some nations where chairs are thrown as well as punches.
