Thanks L.A. Weekly and I’ll See You Tuesday

A lot of you know I’m not one to toot my own horn; but you also know that when a blog wins an award such as L.A. Weekly’s “Top Local Activist Website” that it’s not just a reflection on me as the editor.  It’s a reflection on the work everyone does that writes a story, fills in for a day, writes a comment, or sends a story idea along.  So thanks everyone, we’re making a difference!

Also, Monday is traditionally an off-day for Streetsblog.  I’m going to spend the down time trying to get the calendar into shape for the rest of the year.  If there’s an event you want to make sure makes the calendar section, please drop me a line by filling out the form here: http://la.streetsblog.org/suggest-event/

Five Things I’m Thinking About Transportation

|
When I last took a paternity leave, I returned with a brief column on some stories I would never get to flesh out that occured during my time off. Sometime after that, Steve Hymon started running an occasional “5 Things I’m Thinking About Transportation” series. I’ve rarely done it, but if it’s good enough for […]

Why Streetsblog Doesn’t Write More About Carmageddon

|
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, a rock that doesn’t have Internet service, radio, television, print publications, carrier pigeons, bike message service or regular mail, you’ve been bombarded with messages about how awful next weekend is going to be. You see, to expand the already gargantuan 405 Freeway another lane in each direction, Metro […]
