    The Wolfpark should return the money as a sign of good will.

  • The money didn’t go to them, but a tax-deductible donation to the LACBC.  I heard second hand that LACBC offered to let the donor off the hook, but he was pretty insistent on following through with his pledge.

    That HuffPo blog entry about the Constellation Ave. subway stop is just as much a piece of worthless hackery as the LA Weekly article, except that it’s cheerleading for the other side. Was that really worth a link?

  • Since LASB announced we weren’t going to cover every piece of “news” on the Subway Station battle until the EIR comes out, we try to be even about what we link to in Headlines.  Besides, Joel has been writing about transit and the Westside for HuffPo for nearly two years, so his pieces do carry some weight.

    Only 20%?”  That sounds like a significant increase to me, especially given that Metro’s ridership has been a bit lower this year vs last.  Metrolink’s 100% increase was remarkable.  However, it’s not comparable to Metro because Metrolink recently added weekend passes making the service much more desirable to casual riders than it was this time last year (as well as free Burbank Airport service).  Also, Metrolink weekend ridership is generally low enough that a relatively small increase in numbers could show up as a significant percentage.  It was apparently a 10% increase over the previous Metrolink weekend record.  I wonder how that compares to Metro.

    It hardly follows that because somebody has been writing on a subject for a long time, his articles carry weight. I daresay that has more to do with the quality of the articles. Tenure != gravitas.
