Patience Is a Virtue

Today is sort of a perfect storm for me.  In addition to the regular writing and baby time, I’m being skyped in to meetings in New York and listening and "Live Tweeting" Metro.  I’ll get Today’s Headlines, syndicated stories, a wrap for yesterday’s bike meeting, and a report on the Metro meeting all written by the end of the day; but it might take a little more time than normal.  Thanks for your patience.

  • Awwwww soooo…cuuuuute… thanks Damien for all you’re doing at L.A. Streetsblog and for, today, reminding us why the work we’re doing is important. Let’s create a healthy Los Angeles where your son Sammy and all his fellow Angelenos can live, work, play, learn, breathe and enjoy.

    I like how Sammy is trying to grab the phone from you. Nice to see he is interested in listening in on livable streets info!
