Re: Future cars / Driverless cars

What's not going to happen? Notice I didn't say SOVs were going away, just the idea that every "normal" adult has to own one will likely change. Families owning "at least one vehicle" is not inconsistent with my argument. I think that's the future, sharing cars and using other modes, rather than ha...

Re: Future cars / Driverless cars

I'm sorry but that's just not going to happen. The future being car sharing/transit thing. It is a neat thing for *some* people. And it IS a necessity for others. But it is always going to be The Future, and will never be The Present here unless there is a major economic breakdown where people ultim...

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

I'm fine seeing bonding bills and transportation bills go down in flames as long as it takes to starve the subsidized-driving beast. But are you fine seeing opportunity and equity ripped away from poor families? From families of color? This strikes me as funny and maybe I'm missing an inside joke h...

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

Morse closer in focus is architectural design not artistic? At least in some circumstances? And if so what happens when a company slaps their name on the front of it? All artistic quality is out the window?

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

Can we just get this out of the way....Every single possibility to make money off this stadium is going to be made and probably then some. Just get over it. The more money this thing makes the more tax dollars are generated. That is a good thing. And please just because something has a signature on ...

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

It is Minneapolis Moda... We are not used to "bait and switch" UPGRADES around here. Usually it's downgraded materials, etc. when changes occur. Fully Agree. I have no problem with MediaMesh, but a full HD LED board is a qualitative upgrade from the Mesh. What surprises me is that they don't seem t...

Re: Soccer Stadium and Snelling-Midway Development

I wonder how many of these people crying NIMBY right now will turn around and offer parking in their front lawn for $20/car on match days? Hell a half mile down the road the other way they do it for like 12 days straight during the fair. Where are the calls to get rid of the fairgrounds because of ...

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

It *seems* like we are talking about a few street signs but maybe there are major cost implications here that I'm not seeing. I stand ready to be enlightened but put me down as currently not caring one whit about this street name. What about all of the maps in existence? It may not seem like much b...

Re: U.S. Bank Stadium Construction Updates

Sorry, but this just strikes me as reflexive anti-Wilf complaining, particularly Grant's post. There's some merit behind the ceremonial vs. actual street name point, but we're still talking about a three-block stretch in which (as far as I can tell) the stadium is the only building affected. If we'...

Re: Major League Soccer Stadium

Hell I think it's a shame the Historical Preservation society didn't step in to preserve the bus barn in the first place! And good lord how can we let Midway Bowl and Big Top Liquors be toppled!

Next thing you know we will lose the acrid piss smell wafting out of Big V's!
