Today’s Headlines

7:31 AM PDT on September 13, 2011

Featured Headline: There's no formal link between LA Streetsblog and CicLAvia, other than the people that work on Streetsblog and the people that work on CicLAvia could form a mutual admiration society.  So even though we're in perpetul fundrising mode, I wanted to take a second to highlight their current kickstarter campaign.  The October CicLAvia is going to be larger than before and have more diversity than before.  If you want October to be as amazing as it can be, drop by and give them a donation.
Featured Headline 2: Too often we hear politicians promise that a transit project is going to "reduce congestion" as a way to sell it to the general public.  Of course, that goal is nigh impossible, so people end up dissapointed.  Just a quick h/t to Supervisor Yaroslavsky for calling this one correctly via the LA Now article,  “It’s not going to solve the traffic problems of the Westside, but it’s going to give people an alternative to being stuck with the problems on the Westside."
