PORTLANDS TRIMET RANKS #1-WAIT A MINUTE HERE!

The rankings take into account per capita spending on public transportation, number of safety incidents per million trips, and the number of trips taken per capita.

number of safety incidents per million trips

number of safety incidents per million trips

Our esteemed general manager has informed us that we need a "culture transformation"!
We need to create a "culture of safety"!
But US News and World Reports has just examined the factual data and ranks Portland #1 City, in the ENTIRE US of A!
And part of that rating is number of safety incidents per million trips!

Could our general manager be wrong about our "culture of safety?"
I have been saying all along that there was nothing wrong with our culture!
And now it appears that I have been proven right by none other than US NEWS AND WORLD REPORTS!
Is it possible that a minor blogger could know more about the culture of  Trimet than a guy who has worked in capital projects for 2 decades?
Nah, can't be possible right?
I only made $35k last year.
Neil Mcfarlane made $240k, thats more than 10 times what I made.
He must know 10 times as much stuff about Trimet than me right?

Hey wait a minute... Isn't the public led to believe that ALL TriMet drivers make 90 to 100K a year and don't have to contribute one single dime to their healthcare insurance? Now you want to say that this "culture of safety" thing might be a little overblown too. What about Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and the endless capital projects that are so necessary? Don't tell me they've been deceiving us all this time.
