Working Seven Days A Week Is Fun!

But does not allow much time for blogging.

- The Denver Police are taking a page from the Bloomberg/Ray Kelly playbook and planning in advance to harass and detain cyclists at the Democratic National Convention next week. Besides being wrong on many levels, it is just asinine.

- The Brooklyn Paper has an article on the Devin Cohen / Roger Adler civil court primary. This one is hugely important for progressives. Registered Democrats, please get out and vote for Devin Cohen on September 9th . . . it's a choice between one of the best, most altruistic community activists I've ever met (Devin) and a mercenary political hack (Adler). These primaries are typically low volume affairs . . . your vote counts!

When I get a chance to catch my breath, there's a lot of transit blogging to catch up on. We've got a real opportunity this year to revisit our transit funding schemes and fund the infrastructure investments that will keep New York on top . . . or we could make the same mistakes of the 70s.

Enjoy the unusually cool August weather . . . summer will be gone before you know it.
