Both of these places can take a back seat to Roadrunner.

Re: “PBA: Water District Proposal Has Big Problems, But So Does Status Quo

No, it wouldn't reduce borrowing, or rather it wouldn't reduce the overall expense of borrowing. It would reduce the amount of work that could get done for the same amount of overall expense. Reducing expense is something city council has to do in their decision making. Increasing our bond interest rate just means the council will be able to do less with a given amount of money or they will just incur more indebtedness in the process of doing the same projects.

Re: “Let's Discuss Oregon Traffic Law!

Correct conclusion, but the rationale is reversed. You can turn left (north) on red onto 14th because 14th is at that point a one way street, not because Burnside is a one way. If Burnside were full two way at that point, it would still be permissible to turn left on red.

Re: “A Study in Mayoral Twitter Stylings

I doubt Haynes had ever heard of The Twitters before turning Hales' account into the failed soliloquy that it is. He shows no evidence of understanding of the medium. This seems par for course for Hales, though.

Re: “Occupy Portland Earns Right to Jury Trials, Now Will They Get Them?

If the DA already dropped the class A & B misdemeanors when told they couldn't be tried as violations, they're ultimately just going to drop the class C charges, as well. They dropped the A & B charges because, just like the C charges, they're all BS charges.

Re: “Fluoride Opponents Suggest Knavery in Delayed Release of Cavity Figures

I think you cut the full quote off: "We certainly would have liked to get those numbers earlier... so that we could reconsider whether drugging every man, woman, child, plant, and animal in Portland and the Willamette watershed is actually an effective approach to a problem that seems much more responsive to other, less invasive tactics."
