    As usual, KNX mis-reports on yesterday’s Big Blue Bus fatality: it was in Westchester, not Playa del Rey.

    Perhaps this tragedy would not have occurred, if the LA County Rail network plan from the 1960’s was actually built, and we had the “Green Line” running elevated down Lincoln Boulevard.

    On a related note, three cheers for DAMIEN GOODMON, and his frickin’ obnoxious, arrogant, mean-sprited and now successful campaign to grade-separate Phase I Expo through South LA. His BRU-like campaign tactics make me ill, but I’m very pleased with the outcome. Congratulations for demonstrating that ONE MAN can make a difference. Now, please take a vacation, or some at least, have a smoke and relax.
