So let me see if i get this. People living in the Bay Area are vandalizing buses because they want to prevent a certain "class" of people from living in their neighborhood.....And we are discussing whether this is acceptable? Or maybe we're talking about how to keep these undesirables out by finding them some other place to go? This IS America isn't it?

I'm assuming that income disparity and rising rents in the Bay Area are the real issue here. Why not deal with it from that perspective instead of vilifying Google for providing a service for their employees that actually helps the environment and relieves traffic congestion?
Critics claim that Bay Area tech shuttles' environmental benefits are overstated. They're wrong.

"To see where we come from, look down. To see there we're going, look up"~me
Hi there!

I currently live in the green and pleasant Hudson Vally in NY.

Concerning religious beliefs, i'm a Humanist...and have seemingly been so since i was about 5 years old. I'm an agnostic and a skeptic. If you want to convince me there's a god, you're gonna have to produce him/her/it or no deal.

I love science including (but not limited to) Astronomy, Paleoanthropology, Paleontology and quantum physics (which i struggle to understand at times). I'm a strong supporter of NASA and space exploration.

Most of my reading material consists of science and science fiction. Favourite authors are Asimov, Clarke, Herbert (In fact all of the old SF masters), Gould, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Sagan, Bakker, Dawkins and a host of new SF writers. I also like history and Shakespeare.

I don't watch much TV. I enjoy Jeopardy, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Top Gear when i get the chance.
Love science fiction movies (all of them!) and i enjoy pretty much anything that stimulates the imagination or makes me laugh.

I also like Tennis, Motorcycles and Video games
......and of course music. Big fan of progressive rock, modern jazz, classical, a little opera and the occasional pop, bluegrass or country tune.

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated failures. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”~ Calvin Coolidge/Ed Collins

"If you are going through hell, keep going"~Winston Churchill
