Mr. Cook, this is an excellent column. Timbo, referring to the mass-slaughtering of 20 first-graders as "statistically insignificant" is perhaps the most dark-hearted, inhuman, and offensive thing I've ever seen. The murder of an innocent child is significantly horrible whether it happens once a day or once in a million years.
Tractor-trailers turning onto Woodland from Frazier, and vice versa, would be a huge problem. That is a very tight and pedestrian-heavy intersection. Why would the trucks not use Cherokee and North Market? (presuming most of them will be using Hwy. 27)
