Dr Jeff pans TRIMET's type 4 MAX trains

TRIMET targeting my associates?

An operator that I know pretty well is convinced that his association with me and any appearance he has on my web site leads to direct retaliation from the company.
He comes to this conclusion due to his two recent appearances and then the next day SIP's appear in his company mail.
Cause and effect?
After the first incident I considered the guy paranoid, but after the second incident, I am beginning to wonder.
Of course like most operators he is scared of losing his employment, they surely have us all thinking like slaves, you loose this job and its under the Burnside Bridge with ya!
Do people really want to live like that?

"If you look at our airlines, you can't get to the pilot anymore. They protect the pilot. If you look at our subway systems, the drivers' (doors) are closed. You can't get to the driver. I've talked about that. I've talked about giving them defensive weapons, and it's all been pooh-poohed by the transit administration," said Clarke.
