LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE GOT A HOLD OF A TRIMET BUS RADIO-WARNING! PROFANITY


THE TWO TOP STORIES OF THE DAY

SEE YOU IN COURT NEIL

 LISTEN TO FRED EXPLAIN THE PENSIONS

WE'VE SEE SOME OF THIS ANTI UNION STUFF BEFORE


TODAYS "SEEN AND HEARD ON TRIMESS"


ERIK'S TWEETS CRACKED ME UP TODAY


TRIMET COMMUNICATIONS CENTER-AUGUST 2


MY ADVICE TO NEW OPERATORS WHEN DRIVING IN THE HEAT WITH OUT A/C


LISTEN TO FRED EXPLAIN THE PENSIONS

Now I am pretty sure that he says that the management pensions ARE OVER100% funded but the union pensions are 50% funded! Now why would that be the case?

So, In My Ongoing History of Unusual Things

I got my honored citizens' pass and ID today, as sanctioned by my healthcare provider. Reason being that without it, I'd be barely able, if able at all, to attend any of my important appointments... I guess, hey, don't question a good thing. I won't be facing an increase just yet...

I can't tell if I'm a bit embarrassed or not that my mental disorders (such as Autism and bi-polar disorder) were what qualified me for this... but hey, why question it?

The ID card goes out in 5 years. By then I'll legally be able to drink. Hahaha.

HANGING WITH STEVE AND GOING TO SEE DAN (and others)

This movie is full of little surprises!

SEE YOU IN COURT NEIL

I'm holding you personally responsible for withholding the money that you ILLEGALLY ordered me to pay and now illegally refuse to pay back.  You can't bring your fancy $250/hr lawyer with you to small claims, better remember that.

Sent the Invite!

Now let's hope for a good reply from our CFO.

Under the belief that every single step of this maybe-historic meeting needs to be documented for no reason,

And yet another blog post about Trimet-this one is pretty gushy

Tourists always love Portland. It does look so nice when you really don't know it or understand it.
It's definitely one of the more livable cities, but to tell you the truth, I can't wait to get out of Portland.

And all they have to do is "talk", have coffee, write a few press releases. Life is GREAT for some TRIMET employees;

Pretty decent blog post about Trimet from a tourist

All trains run, or better crawl through the downtown area, and here is actually the strongest criticism I have to give, that within the central area it is one of the slowest systems I have been on.
