  • The solution is more trains, not less TOD.

  • Johnny Baths has the correct idea. Milwaukee needs to be a heavily traveled corridor for the expansion of Chicago, and has all of the infrastructure it needs, it just doesn't have enough trains during the rush hours.

    I miss New Orleans, the city I became an artist. Eight years...eight carnivals, the Krewe du Vieux, the MOMs Ball, the long days on the neutral ground,the fevered pitch at the stroke of midnight on Mardi Gras Day.

    There was a time I too thought is was a mere Bacchanal, drink specials, beads, Spring Break-like with a theme. There is no cultural equivalent in the rest of Protestant North America, I can't do it justice, there is only one way to know.

    "It has been said that a Scotchman has not seen the world until he has seen Edinburgh; and I think that I may say that an American has not seen the United States until he has seen Mardi-Gras in New Orleans."
