    CRC punkd 2

    In the last two years I’ve written over 20 articles breaking down why the Columbia River Crossing freeway mega-expansion isn’t just failed transportation policy, but why it’s an outright nightmare totally out of line with the values our community champions.  From historical precedent, to strange-bedfellow political opposition, to austerity, to the growing climate crisis, to Charlie...

    This piece was originally published on Rebel Metropolis. Okay, I’m gonna try to keep this one short. After dancing on the grave of the CRC this summer, I’ve largely refrained from dragging myself through the nauseating task of tapping fingers to keyboard yet again over this $4 to $10 billion dollar mistake that just...

    This last week has seen a blitz of Columbia River Crossing updates. We learned the now dead freeway expansion and light rail project will likely see an attempted reanimation via a special legislative session originally focused on tax increases and gutting public employee pensions. We learned that the Oregon-only plan being shoved forward will sink...

    Last night, at the Waypost, the Oregon League of Conservation Voters held a forum called “Engaging priorities and engaging pints” to “break down the Oregon Conservation Networks priorities and other important issues in the 2013 legislature.”  It was a pretty standard affair with lots of policy talk except for two events that stood out....

    This article was originally published by Blue Oregon. Childhood asthma. In the era of Swine Flu, pandemics, and entire shows dedicated to outrageous medical oddities (an amoeba in his BRAIN?!), the concept of asthma seems so blasé.
