Full Steam Ahead!

Can you blame me for taking so much time off? Or for including a gratuitous baby picture?

Happy Monday! After a five-month transition period, I am now back as your faithful full-time editor. Abundant gratitude goes to Ben Goldman, who stepped into the role seamlessly and kept the blog focused like a laser on the transportation bill drama unfolding in Congress. He’s put up with an unusual schedule that threw him in full-time and then tapered down as I slowly ramped back up, and he impressed us all with his knowledge of urban planning, rail transportation, and PhotoShop. Thank you, Ben!

I would also like to report that Luna, now four and a half months old, is a true Streetsblog baby. She loves buses and trains and cries every time she rides in a car.
