Ass-backwards

There's an AP article this morning talking about the town of Albert Lea, MN, where apparently many of the residents have collectively gone on a diet and exercise kick. Kids are walking to school, adults are walking to work, etc.

How?
With organizers' help, the city crammed five years of sidewalk and bike trail construction into a year to make exercise easier for its 18,000 residents.

Durham still hasn't met the promises of the 1996 sidewalk bond, and every new sidewalk project has to be monitored closely by its advocates to make sure it doesn't slip off the schedule and get pushed into the next budget cycle.

Backwards way of doing the city's business, if you ask me.

  • I've been waiting with great anticipation for the pedestrian bridge across I-40 to Southpoint for the four years I've lived here. It's a small wait compared to other people's wants and needs, I'm sure.
