a few days ago longwood+brookline was showing walk+don't walk

Waited for the walk signal, chimes came on, and both walk+don't walk were lit up.

They've been replacing street lights and traffic lights with LED units for ages now, and they're far more reliable. You'd think they could spend the extra time keeping things working.

While we're at it: why do you have to wait two minutes to cross the Jamaicaway by the pond at either intersection? Not amusing in 25 degree weather or cold rain.

I was just

in New Orleans, and all of their street signs say "Walk" and "Don't walk" at the same time. It was very confusing at first, then hilarious.

I see a win-win

Fist is that it provides the hospital with a source of patients. Second is that it is good that the hospital is near for the people who are hit. So it's a win-win for everyone!
