Two recommended reads for today:
Once seniors are too old to drive, our transportation system totally fails them
How ‘Not in My Backyard’ Became ‘Not in My Neighborhood’
The first is from 2015 and rather long, but it still has some lessons for us in car-bound Columbia. If you make it to the end you’ll find that the offer is recommending a service for sensiors that sounds an awful lot like NeighborRide.
The second outlines the evolution of how homeowners have come to view a sense of legal ownership of the areas surrounding their homes. I found it both informative and fascinating. See if you can see parallels to how we live in Howard County.
In closing, I am going out in a limb and making the assumption that none of my readers were the ones heaping verbal abuse on the school system for declaring a two hour delay yesterday morning. There was plenty of slipping and sliding even with two hours to bring the temperature up. Whether we agree with their decisions or not, I hope we understand how difficult that job is and their intent truly is to get it right for as many people as possible.
Sermon over. Have a great day, and met me know what you think of either of both of the above articles.
