    traffic planners here?

    Traffic Planning Here in LA..........Good One.
    It is so difficult for them to get anyone to listen to them and when they do listen it is usually a 20 year turn around before anything gets implemented so I would have to say that if they were not sucicidal hopefully they would have picked up a nice drug addiction or other vice.

    Welcome from Chicagoland!!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Hello, from Irving, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Welcome from the Hoosier State.
    maternal side of family is from the LA area.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)
