Speaking of bus driver shortages, Portland's transit system, Tri-Met, is having trouble finding people who want to be bus drivers. Gee, how surprising.

You'd have to be at least half-crazy to sign up for that.

The platform used for this blog is awfully wonky when it comes to comments. It may work for you, it may not. It's a Google thing, and beyond my control. Apologies if you can't get through. You can email me a comment at jackbogsblog@comcast.net, and if it's appropriate, I can post it here for you.
