Sarah Mirk Besmirks the CRC

Sarah just seems to be on a rampage, rightfully so, putting certain Oregon idiocies to rest.  One of those things is the absolutely absurd fact that Oregon has no homicide type laws for motorists that haphazardly kill people with their cars.  I find this unsettling.  If someone is KILLED by an automobile, or any vehicle for that fact, even out of accidental neglect, that person does NOT need rewarded with a lenient slap on the wrist.  People aren’t even fined for this type of thing, as has been shown in several cases where a motorist has killed a pedestrian, cyclist, or other motorist.  This has to change, but I digress, this isn’t the topic I intended to bring up.

Ms. Mirk has pointed out the almost dead CRC, something I seek the death of.  The dreaded and annoying CRC.  I don’t want the $4 billion dollar bridge to Vancouver under any of the designs I have seen.  It would be a step toward pushing people like me (and there are a LOT of people like me) out of the area.  It would have been a huge step, no wait, a LEAP in the wrong direction that Portland has strived to move in.  The bridge would be a damnation of the efforts the city, and hundreds of thousands of people in Portland and Oregon have worked for, a slash of the wrist, a desecration of so many sorts.

Simply put, the CRC had been and continues to be, albeit on life support, almost dead.

I’m celebrating this at the moment, and my mere actions on a daily basis are my vote, in addition to my political vote against this abhorrent idea.  Thanks Sarah for keeping up with this, keep kicking (verbally of course) at these people that keep fighting against what Portland has worked so diligently for.  Thanks!

So this entry, I write in celebration of the CRC being near death, but also I write it in sadness that the automobile continues to be the death of many individuals at the hands of irresponsible and unaccountable people.  People wouldn’t dare hold people waving around shooting guns haphazardly into the air and irresponsibly killing people to such low punishments, why do we let people with vastly more dangerous 3000+ lbs cars do so?

Anyway, I hope to see this car penalty remedied one day as I look forward to the death of the CRC.  September 1st, 2010 is a date to watch.

In other news, everybody have a happy turkey day!!!  : )
