No, Larry didn’t have the streetcars re-installed overnight for the morning commute… Just figured I’d share this image with you on this Tuesday morning. It’s somewhat appropriate with today’s air quality alert for Jefferson and Shelby Counties and Birmingham’s mayor calling for transit system overhauls that we get a chance to check out what could be (and what is). While I wish I could say that I planned to take this image and attempt to follow Sen. Obama’s trip to San Francisco this past weekend, I did hope to take a look at one of the cities that put a bid in for the 2016 Summer Games while getting some great suggestions for ways to improve the site at WordCamp SF (while doing research for WordCamp Birmingham – taking place in September). The results – we’ll start sharing tomorrow (after I get over a minor case of let lag).
