  • Is there any substantive proof that the Times is stealing material from the Bus bench crowd? Not really. And by burying everything in their rude self-congratulatory blocks of text that is near unreadable they make sure whatever discoveries they made about the eastside extension delay were basically inaccessible to us ordinary mortals who have long since written off their outpost of egoboasting as not worth the effort. Quite a few of us knew the eastside line has had some sort of troubles causing a delay in opening even if the specifics have been vague. And of course instead of taking the big picture approach of asking what went wrong and how do we avoid a repeat of it the Bus bench folks are too busy with their scatalogical ranting to do anything so adult. Sad.
