Progress, Part 2
How should the TriMet system look? Here's my take. Why does the 62-Murray Blvd turn from southbound Murray onto Scholls Ferry? Well, because less than ten years ago Murray ended just south of the intersection. But they built a bridge and connected Murray in...

Why Messiah?
Merry Christmas! It's October. So why am I sending you Season's Greetings in the wrong season? Because it never is the wrong season. I am one of those people who rolls his eyes when he hears Jingle Bells in August. I choose the "skip when shuffling" check b...
