    Yeah, but those are cities willing to spend major bucks on infrastructure.

    That's what I was thinking too. But how much would it cost to go under and could they do that without disrupting rail for quite a while. I doubt they could.

    I wonder how it is to work in there though. Looks "gloomy".
  7. ^Agreed but I have often heard a rule of thumb that a distance over X miles was not suitable to LRT. Speed? Durability? Not sure why.

    Thanks for the list! I got some names from folks before but when I tried the Indian place it was too odd for me. I have to check out the Syrian & Lebanon place. I think as immigrants increase, assuming things become rational again, we should see more and more of these products in the mainstream stores.

    Could we astroturf them with fake moss. Make it look like Tarzan's highway?

    Actually that is how the entertainment district looks. I just couldn't find a picture I liked.

    Off topic but I hope there will be more diversity available in grocery shopping as well. Akin to how the beer selection is so good now. Most stores international food sections are 50% tacos and instant noodle variations.
  12. I didn't respond to your prior post because it made no sense and I know you will not change. The downvotes you received were for being insulting and hyper-aggressive and basically ranting towards people.. I don't think it requires a lot of thought to understand. In the post above I asked what i thought was an interesting question, I didn't mean to insult anyone, and I got some good responses. The post referred to how difficult this subject was, my mixed feelings and then I gave the facebook example. I really don't care about your opinion to be honest. I was hoping for some intelligent responses and of course yours get mixed in sometimes. I can ignore them.

    It's all relative:
  14. So you think it was a good idea to give a permit for the Charlottesville white supremacist march through town? @jtmonk has a good post above on what goes into the planning. Obviously these are hard decisions. But they are made all the time in our city via who gets permits for rally's and where. I for one would not want to watch our police force clash with white supremacists and all the people they inflamed on the nightly news. Won't be good for the city at all. BTW, it's not that hard to read someones questions without downvoting the post. I didn't insult other forum members or rant using fowl language. I guess I should just count on your downvotes as a badge of honor at this point.
