If you are going to write a blog about the Grid – please read about the changes that have been made to the concept. It has morphed a great deal since you first learned about it, so you need to update yourself. Then if you still don’t like certain aspects, comment on those, but you must admit the storage and sorting looks promising. Would be nice to see it change from that point and have the electric/CNG CargoWay Trams receiving the containers and have those run along the freeway system and rail lines.

Steve Lamb, Not quite the same piece. The common thread is that Chris Holden and Judy Chu are both avid supporters of building the 710 freeway from the ports for the shipment of goods. The links backing up this statement are different for both politicians. The one for Holden is from an LA times article http://articles.latimes.com/1997/sep/30/news/mn-37728 The one for Chu is actually from a pro-freeway site published by 710 lobbyist Nat Read: http://www.710gap.com/support/409a.htm Judy Chu’s husband, Mike Eng, is also promoting building this freeway: http://710freeway.wordpress.com/ This info at one time was posted on a web blog by Leland Dolley who is a paid “lawyer” who functions in a lobbyist capacity promoting the 710 freeway for the city of Alhambra. That blog has since disappeared and is replaced with the same write up, this time posted by a by a PR firm. You will also see in this link that FMR Gov. Schwarzenegger, Gilbert Cedillo, along with FMR SP councilmenbers Mike Ten, and David Sifuentes (and of course all of the Alahambra city council) have actively promoted construction of the 710 freeway. Please check my other postings to find out why the 710 freeway would damage this region. Click on the links I include, they are important sources of info. http://southpasadena.patch.com/users/reality-check-7/comments And no, not a paid propagandist LOL. Just one of many of Metro and Caltrans’ potential future CARGO freeway victims.

@Steve Garcia: LA Times editorial today says top-two primary combined with redistricting makes for effective government. You feel that didn't happen in 41st district Tuesday? http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-schnur-california-election-20120607,0,993362.story

In response to one of Reality Check's earlier posts, it should be pointed out that Leland Dolley used to be the City Attorney for the City of Alhambra.
