Latest Trimet propaganda

You gotta hand it to the folks at Trimet. They sure do work hard attempting to manufacture consent for their agenda. Weather its running silly contests or idiotic events like 'bringing in the new train' Trimet has something each and every day for the public to consume. 

Watching the Trimet advertising department is like watching a commercial for the latest cell phone. 
SEE HOW GREAT WE ARE? WE ARE JUST SO WONDERFUL. 

The latest nonsense: 5th and 6th avenues designated one of 10 Great Streets in America


What a load of shit that is. There is absolutely nothing special about 5th and 6th avenues.
This award comes from the AMERICAN PLANNING ASSOCIATION whoever the hell they are. Some special interest trade group that exists to support planning projects I imagine. Trimet is most likely a member

Also today we have big daddy federal government coming to town!
They came to heap congratulations on Trimet for the wonderful job they are doing!
In case you haven't noticed these federal transportation secretaries travel all over America congratulating every single transit district that they handed money too.
It's all PR
The big shots get together for some bullshit photo ops and self congratulations

Oh yes Portland is soo great with its fancy street, but in all 3 categories, Portland has one spot, Seattle managed to secure two, one in each of the other categories, one of which mentions the numerous Metro Buses that stroll nearby.
