No “Today’s Headlines” Today

Because I had to get up early to take part in the Gold Line Eastside Safety Ride, there won’t be any activity on Streetsblog until this afternoon.  When I get home I’ll syndicate some stories from the other Streetsblogs then write up the ride report.  Most likely, that will be the only original piece of writing done for LA Streetsblog today.

See you then!
