At least for the time being, the majority of my activity will be on Tumblr. It's the direction this blog had been going, and I'm contemplating moving the URL over there from Blogger, depending on how I like it in the long run.

STL+MKE+MPLS+SF+BOS+CLE+PITT+NYC=LA

Interesting post this morning on Metro's blog, The Source, which is based on a found graphic that shows eight major US cities arranged into Los Angeles' city borders. It offers some insight on the biggest obstacle faced by our local public transportation agencies, and I think it should make us appreciate how good their services actually are.

Hardcovers Are For Your Bookshelf...

...and paperbacks are for reading. Wanted my own copy of Ten Points (after reading it from the library) and found one in paperback online for $10. Turns out it is an advance copy, which may contain editing errors, and can now be sold as a collectible.

Had no idea this type of thing even existed.
