    Anyone think maybe it’s time for a reality show called “My Commute From Hell”?

    Health, and health insurance, is the best reason to bike and a source of funding for bike share.

    Why do Latinos not have longer life expectancy than Whites in the country, and have life expectancy that is going up while White life expectancy is going down? My guess is it comes down to two things. Social connections, and exercise. Whenever you seem someone doing physical work in this country, chances are they are Latinos.

    For those of us who sit on our rear ends all day, the best way to get exercise without using scarce time is to walk or bike to and from work.

    A healthier diet may also have something to do with it. As much as we might make fun of the stereotypical “rice and beans” as a poor person’s diet, it’s much healthier for you than a Big Mac, fries, and a 40 ounce soda. We eat way too much meat in this country, and have way too many grossly unhealthy food additives, particularly high-fructose corn syrup (which in my opinion is so awful it should be banned).

    Having others do physical work for you is unfortunately seen as a sign of affluence in this country. Until not long ago, I think I was the only one on my block taking care of their yard. Everyone else had gardeners. Now that the neighborhood turned over from mostly Jewish with some Italian when we moved here in 1978 to >50% Asian, I’m noticing more and more people doing their own yard work. And more and more people growing vegetables. I’m planning on doing that next year. Now that I’m in a semi-hiatus from work, I’ve been cleaning up the overgrown yard. Not pleasant but it’s exercise.

    Transit Center Article ctrl+f “Cost” only mention is we need more revenue.

    Wouldn’t it be nice to instead of paying 5 times as much for 1 mile of track, get 5 miles?

    Looks like a 12-9 on the F train. Glad I worked from home today, and will be biking to work tomorrow.
