Pondering the election with my co-writer last November.
Pondering the election with my co-writer last November.

Since our re-launch last August, we’ve been running an occasional series interviewing people who are part of the tapestry of transportation reform advocates working hard in the city. We decided to run a series with the Board of the Southern California Streets Initiative, the group helping me raise funds to keep L.A. Streetsblog moving forward.

Since these interviews are done over email, it would be pretty easy for you, the readers, to interview me the same way I interview everyone else.  So, in an effort to help all of you get to know me, and to understand how and why stories are written the way they are, fire away.  Ask questions in the comments section about anything related even in the slightest to Streetsblog and I’ll answer the first ten that you pose sometime early next week.

Browne Poses with Her New TAP Card When I first stumbled on the Bus Bench it was during their “Dead Escalator Series” where Randall “Bus Tard” Fleming basically took pictures of all the escalators around Metro sites that didn’t work.  The Bus Bench became a regular read for me because it provided an alternative viewpoint […]
