The Truth about Portland and Trimet
This is the best series of articles I've read on the Portland phenomenon and how the Portland Technocracy has killed off what is now known at Old Portland
Portland grew by 1.5% last year. These are growth rates not seen since before 2008. Just ponder that number -- 1.5% growth -- and contrast that with housing prices and rents that are growing by double digits. Portland has spent billions -- BILLIONS -- preparing for growth. They have built rail lines all over the place, built highways throughout and run thousands of miles of pipe in anticipation of growth. Yet, they can't handle 1.5% growth without blowing up housing prices? Think of any other entity in any other realm that grows by 1.5% per year and contrast the reaction of that system with the hysteria of Portland. If this is only a 1.5% wave, it doesn't make sense. That kind of wave should roll across the sand and dissipate. Something is magnifying it.

Trimet rider needs help
I told him that all I can do is post to my blog, that Trimet is aware of these problems and just can't seem to get it together to take care of it.
When you're a tax funded unaccountable government agency you can abuse people with impunity
Hello, I know this might not be the proper format for this, but I've been looking around all morning. I'm having a serious issue with trying to buy a ticket via the Trimet phone app. It's been on-going for over two weeks now. I've contacted Trimet through the official lines and was told the problem is on my bank's end (Advantis Credit). I contact my bank and am told they are in contact with Trimet. Do you know if there's a way I can contact Trimet over the weekend? Might there be a blog or some other space where I can take my grievance? I cannot be the ONLY person going through this. This is really affecting my commute to work. I live nowhere within walking distance of a ticket machine. If I can't use the app, I have to haggle with the driver to give me a lift to the nearest MAX stop just so I can buy a ticket. Otherwise, I'm having to pay $2.50. That means in stead of $26, I'm being made to pay $28.50 for a week pass.
Thank you in advance.

Dismantle Trimet capital projects
Trimet's 'on the ground' service needs serious improvements and there is no talk about changing that situation.

Chris Day recovering from attack
r idea of what needs to be done to help me recover. I have some great people around me that is helping me recover. As you see I got a little bit of a shiner from the incident.
It is one thing to be aware of the assaults that are taking place around us. It becomes much more real when you become one of those numbers. This experience has pointed out many more areas that need to be viewed. When an assault takes place we need to find a uniform way to help the person assaulted so that person can focus on recovery. Lucky enough my attacker was caught.
