TRIMET IS GETTING WORSE EXPONENTIALLY


"TRIMET IS THE BEST SYSTEM THAT DON'T EVEN WORK"


GOP MENU!


DID IT EVER OCCUR TO THEM?


I’ve been enjoying the public testimony on the service cuts and it somewhat surprising to watch the ‘independent’ hearings administrator  just interrupt the speakers when 3 minutes is up.

Really, how much would a DIGITAL CLOCK cost so that speakers can see how much time they have.

Interrupting people in mid sentence seems so Mickey Mouse.

STING AT BEAVERTON TRANSIT CENTER


An interesting police sting occurred in Beaverton Transit Center yesterday.

A man had his car stolen from the Beaverton area. The thief contacted the owner and demanded a payment of $500 for the safe return of the car.

The owner of the car did what anybody with any brains would, he contacted the police.

The police had the man go through with the deal.  The exchange was to take place at the Beaverton Transit Center. (Brilliant)

The police had TriMet bring in an old bus. The bus was parked at BTC and left dark as the exchange was to be done at night.

Nobody noticed a bus parked in BTC of course, but this bus was full of cops.

The carnapper came to BTC to do the trade, the bus door opened, all the cops poured out and arrested the brilliant car thief!
