    Even though some of the "best" performers sounded their WORST over the weekend, ALICIA KEYS, NEYO, JOHN LEGEND! Our city, HOUSTON, did a great job hosting the event. I applaud our city for their great efforts. The national media couldnt help but say great things about the Bayou City.

    We all realize that IL traffic is getting more congested but today has taken the cake! All Star game aside the overall mobility was a huge issue. I think it's a good representation of what local traffic could be like in, say, 2017. Not good. Not good at all...

    This. The BRT or LRT is a toy compared to what is needed. It's not that BRT or LRT are necessarily bad or a even bad investment, it's just that the problem is 100 times bigger. Here are examples that I deal with often (but thankfully not daily) that will not be at all improved by the BRT/LRT: -dead stop at 59 WB to 610 NB at 1pm pretty much every time I'm there -2-3 light-cycle backup on 59 WB feeder to NB 610 feeder just south of Richmond pretty much every time I'm there -sometimes going 20-30 mph at 10 am on a weekend And here's what will be worsened with BRT: traffic at Westheimer @ Post Oak. I love the Arboretum in Memorial Park (loved it more before the drought Summer 2011), but I would gladly give up a 100 foot strip there if it meant getting a soundwall for the park and having the West Loop actually being a useable freeway again.

    I was aware a huge portion of Northwest Mall's parking lot was ripped up for the redoing of the 290/I-10 interchange (which, if I understand correctly, will give direct access to I-10 from 290), but wow, the damage from Google Earth is extensive. I'm surprised they didn't knock down the old Foley's/Macy's building in the process.

    So, you could say that the demise of the Houston-Galveston railroad was due to greed. Interesting. I didn't think greed existed anywhere but in automobile factories and concrete plants.

    This is where a real rail system would have really come in handy for a lot of people.

    Patrick Feller has added a photo to the pool: Jefferson Davis Hospital, dedicated in 1924, was built on the site of the 1840 Houston City Cemetery. It spent many years vacant, but recently became the Elder Street Artist Lofts. Click here to view this photo at the HAIF Photo Pool on Flickr

    Now sampled and autotuned. Let a thousand earworms bloom (NSFW, as if it weren't obvious enough):
