Here we go again.....ANOTHER FEAR ALERT

This time Washington Square! No buses allowed in till they realize they have no actual bomb, which they always seem to find out.
But its a great excuse to roll out the police state!

Hotseat: Public Transit Consultant Jarrett Walker

The Portland Streetcar has done a lot of good for the Pearl District, but it was introduced as a development tool, and as it was presented, it was always very clear that the emotional attraction of the vehicle itself was an important part of why we should build it. Why should we build a streetcar instead of just running a really good bus service? We’re moving into a much leaner time. We may start having different conversations about how important it is to have emotionally appealing vehicles, as opposed to creating a system that maximizes people’s personal freedom.
