Steve Balogh has checked in with a couple of new posts — one at Clean Up Syracuse, where he explains why he’s no longer actively maintaining that blog, and one at Baloghblog, where he starts a conversation on the future of OnTrack as it relates to DestiNY.
My personal experience with OnTrack is very limited. The first, only (and probably final?) time I rode it was to get back from Armory Square to the SU hill after volunteering at an “intro to Syracuse” event involving new students. It was 1:30 a.m., I was barely awake, but I couldn’t believe how grungy the cars were. I remember feeling it was an embarrassment for the city of Syracuse to be showing this as a way to try and reassure students that they could get to downtown easily. I know a lot of those students were probably quite used to riding less-than-pristine trains at home, but still.
A complaint by the PS’ Brian Cubbison directed at the Washington Post. And who knew that the Post-Standard has its own march? (Although it sounds more like a waltz)
Heck, you could just take half the letters to the editor and posts of all of the Syracuse-area blogs, set them to music and then we’d have ourselves a true cultural event that people might even want to come out and see.
Here’s my complaint: Why is the redecorated metal bench at the corner of Erie and McBride — public art supposedly meant to Uplift the City — only really visible to the people getting onto the %#^$%#& onramp to 690?!?
