I am curious, as a bus rider, why a mountain of snow remained piled up across the street from Domino's parking lot, blocking the sidewalk completely so that bus riders needed to walk in the street to get to their buses. This would appear to be a code violation as well as a liability, should someone be hit by a car.

The bus riding public are not idiots just because we are poor. Whether we see the inside of the museum is not the point here. When we were kicked out of our fully maintained bus stop on Loop Road because BID people thought we "looked bad" near the new Equal Rights Center, many knew what would happen. Our new bus stop would be dangerously inaccessible in winter due to ice and snow, and we would all be forgotten. Handicapped and elderly ridership would decline. It is now survival of the fittest.

Since the BID runs and staffs that center, I realize it is an inside job and they will not listen to our community activists. However, our protest movement will continue until our bus stop is restored to Loop Road. The people on the video screens who stood up for human rights also have some counterparts on the streets of Auburn, not famous, but speaking truth to power. And power just does not seem to "get it."
