@el dulce - care to share how much you paid - or will that classy pic of your hipster glasses have to speak for the 'massive' amounts that you make? @el dulce+D - you both equally sound like self-important morons to me.
Its stupid to think that all internal combustion engines will go away - planes, trucks, and all cars will be eliminated? Care to take a bike any time you want to move your furnature cross-country or to visit friends? Row to Europe or Tibet for a vacation? Wait 4 weeks for a package from Amazon shipping? Not likely. It's also just as stupid to keep going with our foreign oil dependency. However, the truth is much of our tax base that pays for transportation is based on the fees that autos, trucks, and airplanes pay - something big will change if those dollars go away.
Better/worse - no idea - we'll cross that bridge when we get there. Just chill the heck out.
But yeah - fix the friggen cesspool river, dump the stupid bums that keep taking the money we pay them and not even fix pipes or basic services. A fire hydrant outside my house got hit 3 YEARS ago, it's been marked by the city, and it's still not fixed. Or how about actually giving us the tri-met services we've been paying for. Or how about figuring out why our schools are in the the top 10 of funding per student, but in the bottom 10% of performance.
You mention Phatongram on Wednesday night but not the fact Paul Oakenfold is in town? Just listened to Phato. myspace and it's pretty sad stuff - not what I call danceable at all. More like a head-bobbing shoe gazing like all the others.
