I'm not dead yet!Greetings!
Hopefully everyone has been having as lovely of a summer as I have been. I'll be back to full posting in the fall.
One thing I've learned this past month is that it's very difficult to have a reasonable discussion on transit in this city. It's not that there aren't any ideas - it's that no one is willing to compromise.
Case in point, I came across this quote:
"The only option that makes any sense is ending both Sheppard and Danforth at STC. End of discussion."
Now you may agree or disagree, but leaving no room for compromise ends up causing a flame war where people who choose to disagree are belittled and ridiculed into submission. I suppose that this is the nature of the internet where no one has to take responsibility for their actions, but, as I have found, being reasonable and being open to compromise tends to get you to a position of influence a lot further than calling people names (marine mammals, for example).
Have a great August!
