A few days ago, Taylor Huckaby, manning the Twitter account for BART (the Bay Area Rapid Transit system) during a major outage, got especially candid about the real problems going on and why they were hard to fix. The story, and his tweets, went (deservedly) viral: #ThisIsOurReality  became the hashtag.

Today, he's following up with a short article about the broader realities of running a public transit system, and its real costs and benefits. And by being straightforward and up-front about it, he makes the best possible case for investing in its maintenance. When the $3.5B bond measure he describes comes up this November, I'll be voting for it now.

Sometimes, a bit of simple honesty is worth more than a ton of political campaigning.

"The way that you would give credence or emphasis to one verse as opposed to the other has everything to do with who you are. That’s why they have to sort of constantly go back to this notion of an almost comical lack of sophistication in the conversations that we are having about religion...there’s a shocking inability to understand...that religions are neither peaceful nor violent, neither pluralistic nor misogynistic — people are peaceful, violent, pluralistic, or misogynistic, and you bring to your religion what you yourself already believe."

Cannot believe the ignorance of people thinking that lifting weights during pregnancy is a problem. I was doing weighted back squats at 26 weeks, had no idea that the concept was so controversial.
