    “Have you noticed the new Lake Washington Blvd speed bumps?”

    Some slight slow-downs for the bumps, followed by the car drivers flooring it? Oh, and rows and rows and rows of cars waiting on the construction. Poor saps.

  2. The “The Case for Keeping Seattle’s Streets Messy” piece completely misses the point of “fixing the grid”. Fixing the grid doesn’t mean bulldozing the Ravenna, or Lake Washington Boulevard, or any other curvy streets he likes. It means ensuring that there are direct, straightforward connections between places, primarily for the benefit of pedestrians, and primarily where there once were direct connections that were removed in order to overbuild roads like Mercer and Aurora. People shouldn’t be able to get jobs writing for outlets like The Atlantic without actually taking the time to understand what they’re talking about, but sadly they do.
