Yay 49 and yay Max security
I’m so proud of Oregonians for passing measure 49 on Tuesday, which will keep our landscapes from being turned over to developers who will develop any thing in any way that can make them money. This will really make a difference in our ongoing struggle to avoid becoming exactly like the rest of SprawlAmerica in which the unit of measurement is the car.
Yay. Thank you everyone who voted yes. I for one am thrilled, along with hordes of other people.
In other matters: Tomorrow I’ll ride the Max train again. Yesterday was supposed to be the start of the police patrols they’re going to have now. I think that if they just walk around and look decorative, that will do the trick. I’ll report back.
Also, it’s been discovered that the security cameras at the Gresham stations are merely placebos. This came out when security videos were requested for the investigation of the guy who got beaten up with the baseball bat the other day. Sorry, no have video. Now he’s thinking of suing Tri-met.
