Re: “The US Coast Guard is Fine with the Columbia River Crossing

Note that the Coast Guard document explicitly says the permit is void if any changes are made to the planned structure.

In other words, no fixing this.

Re: “Nothin' but Net Profits

How is "actively negotiating" not threatening to "break up"? Either they are or they aren't.

Re: “Mapping the Mayoral Money Race

> I still think that even the richest of local developers have a better reason to donate to a Portland mayoral race than people in DC, NY, LA.

Jefferson started a nonprofit with affiliated headquarters in four states, and went to school back east. So the fact that he has a handful of friends across the country willing to support him doesn't strike me as a bad thing. They have much less to gain, financially, from Jefferson than the developers, coal barge makers, and engineering firms do if Charlie is elected.

Re: “BTA on City Bike Plan: BUILD IT!

If we get 25% of Portlanders biking (reducing driving rate by 20%), we'll save billions of dollars by drastically reducing how much the I-5 bridge has to be widened.

So think of this as a giant buy-1, get-100 free coupon.

Re: “Free Breakfast for PSU Bikers (Plus, an Idea for Portland State Bike Sharing)

Quick correction:

Breakfast is right off the CycleTrack on SW Broadway and Harrison Monday-Thursday, and will be at the Bike Hub (6th and Harrison) on Friday (only).

Thanks for the writeup Sarah!
