Which Would You Rather Me Cover on Thursday?

On Thursday there are two important, but very different, events happening in Downtown Los Angeles at the same time.  A year from now this wouldn’t be a problem, but today is today and we have one reporter on staff.  Thus, I’m asking you which event you want me to cover.

In the red corner, we have ThinkBike.  The Consulate General of the Netherlands, in cooperation with LACBC and City of Los Angeles, will host ThinkBike, a unique, bi-national bicycle promotion and design workshop.  The opening event is Thursday morning.  Our coverage would probably look something like this.

In the blue corner, we have the Metro Board of Directors.  If the Regional Connector were on the agenda, this would be an easier decision, but the agenda looks a little ho-hum by Metro Board Meeting standards.  Of course, there’s always some good stories at the Metro Board…

Vote and let me know.  I’ll go with the numbers.
