On the Blogs: Greater Greater Washington
From Greater Greater Washington (a favorite of mine) today:
- Sex and the City: why women and families matter – “A recent study at Cambridge University says that urban development projects tend to cater to men. Poor transit systems and lack of schools and daycare near workplaces, it found, restrict women’s ability to balance work and family. How do cities in the United States cater to men and women? In particular, does the physical, social, and economic structure of the DC metropolitan area disadvantage women?” Go to post.
- Metro staff propose service cuts – “At yesterday’s Finance Administration and Oversight working meeting, WMATA chief John Catoe and Chief Financial Officer Carol Kissal discussed potential “service adjustments“, i.e. service cuts, in order to close the remaining $73M budget hole for the 2010 fiscal year, which starts July 1.” Go to post.
