Yesterday I joined Which Way, LA? with Warren Olney (Ahhh, Warren Olney. His show falls under the “reasons I love public radio” umbrella). We were together to talk about Waze, the crowd-sourced traffic app.
A recent AP report focused on how the app is changing traffic in Los Angeles and talked to residents who are objecting to more cars in their neighborhood. From AP:
When word spread that the explosively popular new smartphone …
Can you imagine a day where KCRW only had a pledge drive that lasted for 4 days? And within those 4 days, can you imagine if we didn’t interrupt every KCRW program asking for your support? Instead, only reaching out to you during three shows – as – opposed to all of eternity? I know, sound too good to be true, right?
Well my friends …

Are you thinking about getting a dog? Yes? From where? I love dogs. They make life better. How about adopting from the pound? Some people make the assumption that something will be wrong with a dog from an animal shelter.

I’m not sure who is worse, the perpetrator or the witness that refuses to act like a good citizen. We know why the creep that did the crime isn’t turning himself in…he/she doesn’t want to get in trouble. But why won’t witnesses step forward?

Is it because they think it’s none of their business? Oh contraire mon frère/cheri. This is not just a cyclists issue. It’s not just a pedestrian issue.It’s not just a car-on-car issue.
This is a people issue and affects all of us. Pull together peeps, let’s do this!
