A Time for Attention

I wonder how wise this wanton inattention probably isn’t. The United States has a grave racial problem that isn’t getting better. The problem is not the black middle class, which is about like any other, but the dangerously angry underclass of the graveyard cities—Newark, Detroit, DC, Chicago, Trenton, Dade, Richmond, Atlanta, on and on. I’ve spent many nights in such places. It’s ugly. And it’s explosive. Depending on your politics, you can blame blacks, whites, God, terrorists, or sunspots, none of which changes anything.

TriMet Deaths, One Year Later

What to do with David Sale? He needs to spend an entire shift with a Trimet bus driver, someone like Dan Christensen would be great. He needs to see the world of bus driving through our eyes. He will never understand until he does something like that. I do not and never will agree that our culture is "unsafe". US News and World report debunks that the concept of Trimet being an unsafe transit district.  Yes we have a few "clowns"  that seem to have eluded all the layers of bureaucracy and ended up working were they should never have been, but basically we operate a safe system.

Can't believe the number of fare disputes going on

There are so many calls coming in to dispatch about fares I can hardly believe it.
Interestingly, they are all coming from the east side of the district.
