Knute Berger, ever the contrarian, has a weekend essay in Crosscut arguing that, hey, we’re actually moving forward on this whole infrastructure-upgrade-thing that blogs like this one have been so obsessed with, so, you know… let’s give ourselves some credit.

And he’s right. We are moving forward, and that’s one reason why I wanted to start this website. There’s just so much going on to talk about and document.

Anyway, the article’s alright, but you should definitely take the time to scroll down through the comments, where Berger and R&T proponent Sandeep Kaushik get into it over Ron Sims, congestion pricing, and more. I’d give a link, but Crosscut‘s funky content management system doesn’t seem to provide permalinks to comments.
