Did you notice that "off-the-charts poor" was a link to a Tucson Weekly article? http://www.tucsonweekly.com/tucson/off-the… Guess you provided him all the ammo he needed. ;)
Is Howe gonna Skype it in?
I wonder what the Congress Street business owners would think about that plan? I'm inclined to think that they'd be opposed, since they may rely on through traffic for exposure to their businesses. (e.g., the Rialto & Fox marquees)
I've often felt that limiting Congress to pedestrians/bikes would be a great idea, but I wouldn't go so far as limiting all of downtown to pedestrian traffic.
It's unfortunate that Broadway isn't wide enough through downtown to provide 2 lanes in each direction, as that would make the decision easier. You could then give westbound drivers the option of going west on Broadway, northwest on Toole, or north on 4th Ave. Limit Congress to pedestrians/bikes (and the street car) from the Rialto to Stone.
Why not the Tucson Weekly as well, for that matter?
While I like the idea behind it (removing anonymity), I'm not too keen about requiring a Facebook account to be able to comment on stories. For various reasons, some of us have chosen to delete our Facebook accounts, or never to sign up at all. I'm saddened at the trend of organizations requiring Facebook to use their services (e.g. Spotify).
