  1. I certainly have not paid any attention to the costs. Yet one need to admire the men that have designed this, and the men that have have the ingenuity to put this whole thing together.


  2. I agree the project is extraordinary. But the person who saved Sound Transit and ran it for well over a decade was not a man. It was a woman. Her name is Joni Earl.


    1. I certainly admire someone that can look at the political waste, like a billion dollars and not a miles of track was not on the ground. I just think it is amazing how these large concrete and steel structures are built. The foundations for support. Even the tall walls that keep the hill away from the structure. I am certain that more women are involved today. If you look at all the wonders of world that were built from cathedrals to bridges, engineering geniuses were certainly involved.


  3. Seattle get’s it’s own BART. It’s a homelessness magnet, a crime magnet, will never meet transportation needs, will be a dumpster fire of money. This whole corridor will become a project.

    Passenger rail only works when it’s under ground, and when it has access to endless money to cover the year over year over-runs. For example, the DC Metro. It’s a great system because it’s under ground and has immediate access to new money. Sound Transit started out by needing to steal money from car tabs, and misrepresenting the innate costs.

    I think Seattle is extending eviction protections until December 31st 2021. Any other city not doing this will be facing Rent Strikes as the Cancel Rent term is trending. The Sound Transit corridor and the the Highway 99 corridor will be a target for the impending Cancel Rent movement. The fallout of this here in Edmonds will be very tangible.
