Stop the Bagby closure, oil import tariffs, Inner Katy MaX Lanes, virus vs density vs heat, HTX #1 home values, and more

Apologies for the long gap between posts - I wanted to give the 15-year anniversary post extra time as the lead post on the blog. But in the meantime we've accumulated a whole lot of news items to get out, only a few of which related to the coronavirus (maybe a good thing?).

First, following up on my post last month about the potential for a permanent closure of the Bagby and Brazos entrance/exit to/from the 59 Spur, there's now a formal opposition website to the closure where you can sign the petition.
There are more backlogged items, but I'll save them for a future post.

Finally, our quote of the week:
{NYC} Mayor de Blasio has scoffed at the “road diet” idea that traffic will melt away if fewer lanes are provided. “We have to be careful,” he told Gothamist recently. “If we say, ‘Hey, let’s reduce the amount of lanes,’ that’s not a guarantee people get out of their cars; it is a guarantee of traffic jams and other problems.

Another vision zero option is Capital Manslaughter. Kill anyone under the influence and you might have life to death as a penalty.

At the very least the bus lanes have to be max lanes up until the current hov flyover.
