Spring 2Q07 Highlights

Time for the quarterly highlights post. These posts have been chosen with a particular focus on significant ideas I'd like to see kept alive for discussion and action, and they're mainly targeted at new readers who want to get caught up with a quick overview of the Houston Strategies landscape. I also like to track what I think of as "reference posts" that sum up a particular topic or argument.

Don't forget we offer an email option for the roughly twice/week posts - see the Google Groups subscription signup box in the right sidebar. An RSS feed link (Atom) is also available. As always, thanks for your readership.

From Winter 1Q07:

And don't forget the highlights from the first two years. For what it's worth, I think the best ideas are found there, often in the first year (I had a lot "stored up" before I started blogging).

The last post was excellent probably the best discussion I have seen yet. I normally agree with you, but on one account I agree with the others on that post. One story does not make a case for or against transit. I know that is not what you meant by your story, but it sure seemed like it.

An anecdote that once and for all proves how great transit is:)

Got off from work at lunch today. I needed to go to the med center to get my hearing aids fixed. I hate driving in the med center, and the methodist garage costs alot. I also needed to get some lunch. I parked near the Rice station for free, caught the train to methodist. Did my business there, then caught the train to downtown and ate at Treebeards ( excellent restuarant by the way ). Then rode back to my original station. Spent the time on the full trains catching up on my reading.

Extra time spent: approx fifteen minutes

Money saved: approx five dollars

increase in the pleasantness of my day: a whole hell of a lot.
