    Shimano just keeps doubling down on arbitrary market segmentation. "If your bike is this shape, here are the gears we'll let you use". I wish they had less of a stranglehold on the industry.

    Sure, it's fine for you to park there, and sure it doesn't hurt anything. More than eleven thousand people board daily at Ballston. Can all of them have somebody double park to wait for them? Is it...

    I think that already works without any changes. (In reality, I don't think anyone really cares that much if you briefly stop even in a traffic lane--the problem becomes if you decide you need to sit...

    Yes, it is their fault that they think their convenience trumps everyone else. Whether you add a lane or not, there isn't enough space for a significant portion of ballston metro riders to have a car...

    I've never had that kind of delay in a wiggle delivery. Sometimes you just lose the shipping roulette game, or it's possible the logistics meltdown caused by the port closure in CA had an impact....

    I'd suggest picking someone up somewhere else. Ballston doesn't have the room for a kiss and ride, that's why there isn't one. You can't have TOD around a suburban commuter station.

    I think a giant box with a windup handle would be perfect both as public art and as a place for the jack-in-the-box cop assigned to harassment duty.

    I'm mixed about this. On the one hand I'd like to see the service. On the other hand, amtrak's biggest existential threat is congressional micromanagement.
