"All I can say about the upcoming legislative session is that thank God Matt McQueen pre-filed his "make the green chile cheese hamburger the state hamburger" bill.  They need to get on that ASAP.  "

"Heh, Brian, it would be nice to have a hawt mayor.  I would also argue that, as a former representative of the International District in the State Legislature, he knows very well what Albq.'s real problems are."

Hi OTBS - I'm an engineer - therefore I'm forever thinking up solutions to perceived issues.  (For example, I prodded Transit into providing bus schedules at the bus stops - they fell in love with Apple apps, but the vast majority of bus riders are poor and can't afford iPhones.  Having a schedule at the bus stop is more useful.)  So, anyway, if you could post your issue (with a proposed solution) in the Transit page - that would be great.  If other people are interested (ie, add a comment), then I'm interested and will try to bring up the issue. 

We did have a rider attend our last meeting, and he brought up the fact that the Rapid Ride bus going up Central is only crowded during commuting time, but, otherwise, everyone rides the 66 - because of the numerous stops.  And virtually no one gets off between EDO and San Mateo.  (Just like I observed.. - this is the reason I think the BRT won't accomplish anything except to kill off small businesses in Nob Hill). 

Anyway, thanks for all the interesting comments you have made through the years, and post those transit-related concerns/solutions for other bus riders to find them (please).

- Shotsie

Maybe I haven't been paying enough attention, but I hadn't seen many comments from you in a while.  I went to what I thought was your page and there wasn't any activity on it so I thought you had left us!  Had me worried! ;)

//That includes the bike trail in the Bosque, people.  I protest this egregious impingement of my freedoms... ;)//

Ooh, you rascally cyclists had better stay off the streets, impinging my freedom to tear ass down the road with reckless abandon and my head planted firmly up my ass!

Who knew so many Burqueños fantasized about being John Wayne and are willing to endanger real people in an effort to protect them from invisible "criminal" types?

I thought you'd given up on dealing with the Dumb & Dumbers on DCF. Miss the taste of blood?

Dad often asks me when I'm running for mayor. Man, that's about the last thing I want to be.

That's a great idea. Thanks for the tip, I'll definitely follow it up. This place cares more for appearances than for common sense.
