No apologies: 5 things that need to be said about the death of Daunte Wright
Everyone agrees that Daunte Wright's death was tragic, but we can't ignore the facts and stick to a stubborn narrative about race.
Today marks 30 years since The Simpsons debuted in 1989. In honor of the longest-running American primetime scripted series, I wanted to share a clip from one of my favorite episodes, “Marge vs. the Monorail.”
The lesson to be learned from this episode is clear: just because something is flashy and new does not mean the expensive form of transit is necessary. Especially if it takes priority over more valuable infrastructure maintenance, such as fixing roads. For many towns and cities, monorail is synonymous with boondoggle.
