Rueened: Man On Pink Corner: Is this where some hipster with no driver's license claims that widening highways actually harms traffic flow, and then disappears from the thread when I point out that if this counterintuitive notion is indeed true, then we should be able to speed up traffic by closing existing lanes?

Only in your imagination, but keep thinking that anyway if it makes you feel better.

that guy just showed up a little late is all. probably traffic.

Gyrfalcon: rewind2846: People want sh*t but don't want it A. anywhere near them B. where it might in any way inconvenience them C. to cost any money at all D. all of the above.

Suck it up, buttercup.

All of these. And E. as fast as humanly possible.

Still my favorite story: Immediately after the L.A. riots, people of all colors and economic levels were SCREAMING at the lack of police response, lack of fire response, etc. So the new chief, Willie Williams, and the city council put a referendum on the November ballot (the riots were in March) for a small raise in sales tax that was specifically earmarked to hire, train and equip 1000 new police officers for LAPD. Joy! Cheering! Thank god we'll be safe!

When November came along, the referendum was soundly....defeated because nobody but nobody wanted to pay even a miniscule amount of new taxes for more ANYTHING. Why can't PD just spend less money and still protect us from teh bad guize?

So every time anything bad comes along and anyone complains about lack of police response--well, they had their chance. But we don't want to pay money...

LAPD?  NOBODY wants 1000 more of them on the street.

Now, if they start by firing the whole department, from the chief on down, and hiring all new cops, they might be able to put together something useful.

Solid State Vittles: At the risk of sounding nit-picky, Route 66 runs from Chicago to Los Angeles.

At the risk of sounding nit-pickier, it also runs from Los Angeles to Chicago.
