Programming Note: Jay is in NYC for the Vision Zero Cities conference and related Families for Safe Streets organizing events. We had planned to keep a normal headlines schedule this week, but haven’t been able to do it. Just FYI – At this point, maintaining and trying to build Streetsblog Texas is an unfunded desire of Farm&City. We’ll be earnestly launching our annual fundraising efforts soon and hope we can count on your support.
