I Give it Seven Years

And here I am with another post, trying to pick up the slack for MIke. Again. We have no mercy around here, even for people who have to get up every 3-4 hours in the middle of the night to feed a cranky baby! None!

Just kidding, Mike! Hang tough!

So today marked the official purchase of land for the city of Anaheim’s much-hyped Platinum Triangle transportation hub. The land is located between The Pond and Angel Stadium, and it will be interesting to see how freaking long it takes get the thing up and running. Although it actually sounds as if it is a viable idea, since unlike a lot of stations, you could actually get off the train/bus and arrive fairly close to your destination. And who wouldn’t want to avoid at all costs that 10 buck parking at the Pond?

They also mentioned that they planned on the hub having speed-rail capability.

Now, chant with me, my friends:

“Bullet train to Vegas, bullet train to Vegas!”

    The bullet train to Vegas seems like the biggest no-brainer in the transportation industry to me. You mean I can walk/bike/segway/drive 10 minutes to the train station and then not have to be sober another second for the rest of my trip? How is it not built yet?

    I’m all for ARTIC. But I’m getting ready to sing: “M-O-N-O-R-A-I-L! What that spell Monorail!”

    A classic Simpson’s Joke.

    Now bring us some football!
