    So what’s the story with Ed Schultz? Gosh, try to do your work instead of living on TOD and I miss the news.

    Portland drivers ‘clearly’ show racial bias at crosswalks, PSU study says (poll)

    Racial bias doesn’t stop with education, employment, health care and criminal sentencing. It’s also prevalent at crosswalks in Portland, according to a new study of traffic psychology.

    Conducted in downtown Portland, the joint Portland State University and University of Arizona study found that twice as many drivers failed to yield for black pedestrians than those who were white. Meanwhile, black pedestrians typically had to wait a third longer for cars to stop for them when they had the legal right of way.

    With fewer motorists yielding for them, minorities are more likely to take greater risks to cross the street, which might factor into why they’re disproportionately represented in U.S. pedestrian fatalities, the study concluded.

    “In a fast-paced activity like driving, where decisions may need to be made in a fraction of a second, people’s’ actions can be influenced by these subtle attitudes,” the study said.

    The results come at the same time as the Smart Growth America’s annual “Dangerous by Design 2014″ report (PDF) showing the most dangerous U.S. Cities for pedestrians. Despite a string of deaths in the final weeks of 2013, the Portland metro area was ranked the seventh safest for walking, according to the group’s “pedestrian danger index.”

    I would be just like that lady in the video meeting the President. “This is the best day”. But I’m not sure if words would even come out of my mouth! I would probably just start crying. The peoples President he is!!!

    When talking to Access Hollywood FLOTUS mention that for Mother’s Day Malia wrote her a two page letter. How nice of Malia, sometimes things like that take more effort and show more love then going to buy some gift or card.

      That’s beautiful. When my sons went away to college (before the era of email) they wrote me some wonderful letters that I will keep and cherish for the rest of my life.

      I love Pete. I bet he’ll retire when PBO leaves the WH because he will have seen and done just about everything. You can tell that he really has a fond admiration for PBO.

    I want a full hour documentary on this walkabout. I want all the people he met to be interviewed and given their impression of meeting the greatest leader in the free world. Okay who can we contact to produce this gem? Let’s call it “When the :bear: is loose”

    Oh Gawwwdd, Alison Grimes is calling on Eric Shinseki to resign.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’d love nothing better than to see that jerk McConnell GONE for good, but I’m getting a big Joe Manchin vibe from her.

    Most Corrupt Members of Congress Report 2013

    CREW’s Most Corrupt Members of Congress Report

    DOWNLOAD THE REPORT AS A PDF

    CREW’s ninth report on congressional corruption names 17 members of Congress—13 members who engaged in serious misconduct and four members whose transgressions brought them a dishonorable mention. Seven members are on the list for the first time this year, and 10 are returning. In fact, six—Reps. Vern Buchanan (R-FL), Michael Grimm (R-NY), Gregory Meeks (D-NY), Hal Rogers (R-KY), Don Young (R-AK), and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)—are on the list for at least the third time.
