A report found that counties like Westchester, Nassau and Suffolk faced tough competition from New York City for young people, perhaps because of less diversity and a dearth of modest rentals.

"It is a well-trod trail: [...] move back to the suburbs [...]."

Starting it off with a  :facepalm:

The suburb has a longer history in England, but in the States it wasn't really a thing until relatively recently.  Fifty to sixty years (post-war to 2000s) is not that well-trod a trail.

Explanations also overlooked one obvious factor (long commutes to work) and then tries to sell me on moving to a suburb?  Not sure...

weird Los Angeles freeway thing today.

I was taking a weird set of freeways in the Valley, had to jump off one, ride on a city street, and get onto another one. I heard sirens.

As I was getting on the freeway, I looked to my left to prepare for merging. Cop with rollers going, blocking all three lanes (car is perpendicular to the road). Tons of traffic behind him. I couldn't see him sooner because there were freeway noise walls up.

Much thinking ensues. Looked at him (only perhaps 30 feet away) and saw what looked like an exploded truck tire across the lanes. Looked in the forward direction of travel, looked clear except for a semi truck on the shoulder.

Cool. I shouldn't feel bad about jumping on the freeway. zoom zoom, clear freeway. It was REALLY weird.

yeah, I thought maybe they were doing the "wave" thing, but he was 90deg, parked, truck tire.

I seem to be passing a lot of "slow drivers in the fast lane" texting recently.

"Hierarchical command/control organizations are built on mistrust. They assume that nobody beneath you in the hierachy is truly self sufficient and competent, so they impose paternalistic governance practices that force these assumed-incompetent players to behave."

I did use it, but I just found it too slow. Paper is just faster. Then there's the problem of fiddling with one's phone in Portland weather. Anyway, I now get a pre-tax pass at work, so paper is my only choice at the moment.

so, Tonx Coffee was purchased by Blue Bottle. And Blue Bottle recently picked up Handsome Roasters. That's three high-end coffee brands swirled together.

My speculation is that Tonx has a better supply chain and (obviously) has the internet presence that Blue Bottle was lacking.

Didn't know they'd acquired Handsome. Not sure what to think - I was enjoying having several different sources for beans.
