Clouds are looking a bit like mammatus wandering back from St Paul. Another building I like: the font, the style, the oak trees, the LRT in front. I attended a USDOT meeting there last year. Getting to the room was a parody of a bureaucracy, turn after turn after turn (I stopped counting at twelve) but I arrived just in time to hear a presentation on how highways don't belong in cities, how it goes against what Eisenhower believed, how the highway system was to be between cities not inside them, how inefficient highways and arterial roads are for driving (because we know how much they hurt walking, biking, living). It was a dreamlike experience, this federally sanctioned engineer saying everything I knew to be true, in muted words with staid and graphics that had spent more time with a budget mimeograph machine than a typographer. I spoke to them afterwards, thinking perhaps I'd projected our future onto their words. But they confirmed it, in more direct and vehement language they hadn't want to tell the community what to do, particular given the disastrous history of racist highway policies here, but certainly their opinion as a public servant engineer was that both highways and arterial roads were contradictory for efficiency of all modes in a city. I've replayed that conversation over and over, for myself and others. It is incredibly reassuring to me to know this person exists within the bureaucratic systems, that they were given a platform to speak, that they said what they did. That power spoke truth to power.
