What a pity. Newsom's veto last year indicated some specific concerns, apparently he's just opposed to the whole concept. Owens thinks he's simply following a recommendation from Caltrans, even if it's very foolish. I guess we'll keep waiting for a good bike bill, in the mean time, at least they passed the no-car tax credit.
Before anyone tells you this is only because of ranked choice, remember that this isn't that different from a standard primary, where Palin would have won, and then she'd have lost to the democrat, this way was just faster. The Republican party has multiple serious candidate quality problems at once.
So, believe it or not, my photo on today’s post used DALL-E outpainting! The day I took the photo, I didn't realize that I was missing context. In just a few minutes I managed to expand it significantly. Here's the original for comparison.
• Aaron Eckhouse points out that City Councilmembers not being allowed to vote on projects near their house is sorta dumb.
• Thread explaining why Manchin's permitting reform would be a good idea even if it only applied to natural gas.
