Hmm…………. a blue screen in the forest?  Bobby in a wig?

I would think it IS a FB - but in an episode where the FB relates to Jasmine? I can only think it’s a FB to perhaps before Rumple got back to SB?

Ooh, maybe it’s Rumple calling on Morpheus ? I think he’s wearing the same suit from the premiere …

Ausiello: Maybe, eventually. But “the ride there is pretty bumpy,” warns series co-creator Eddy Kitsis. Adam Horowitz meanwhile promises moments of “reminiscing” for the oft-estranged marrieds, “and discussing what it’s going to mean when their child is born.”

Ausiello: Though Robert Carlyle was able to lose the mustache he donned when filming this summer’sTrainspotting sequel, his indeed brought Begbie’s cropped ‘do back to Storybrooke. The loss of Rumple’s salt-and-pepper mane “will absolutely be addressed,” says Horowitz. “And the answer isn’t that he went to doTrainspotting 2.”

Chamber of Bellevue does not support ST3 because they already got their light rail

Someone please send a tube of aloe vera cream to the Chamber of Bellevue, as their hands are likely burnt from pulling the transit ladder up behind them. 

Citing, in part, Senator Reuven Carlyle’s strawman argument about education vs transit funding, the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce decided yesterday that they would not support ST3, the crucial lightrail expansion that’s going to be on your November ballot

This was slightly surprising—as the Bellevue Reporter points out, basically every other regional chamber and business group supported the measure because it will help people, you know, get to businesses. But not the Bellevue Chamber! No, they think the area should “tap the brakes.”

Of course, the “too much, too fast” (or, in this case, somehow both too fast and too slow?) argument is well-covered (by who else but the Times Editorial Board?) but it does seem that Bellevue, an area plagued by gridlock, would want improved regional transit, right? Especially since one of their key promises to the community is that they “Drive public policy for the business community and lead critical business issues to make a lasting impact”?

They sure did back when the ST2 package was up for a vote in 2008. Probably because they wanted that sweet, sweet East Link that’s going in like, right now. 

Num num, delicious rails. 

But now, it seems, Bellevue has gotten theirs and is no longer interested in patching together a regional transit map that services, like, other areas. 

“The chamber sees the value of additional light rail investments to high-density destinations, such as the emerging Spring District (in Bellevue), Overlake and downtown Redmond, all of which can be accomplished in the short term,” according to a press release from the Chamber. 

“However, we have less confidence in the projected costs and benefits of those light rail projects scheduled for completion after 2030. We can’t wait until 2041 for flexible transit alternatives to serve medium and low density destinations. In the short run, the Chamber believes there is no need to rush to the ballot with this set of investments, at this price tag in 2016. Let’s tap the brakes, fix basic education and then come back for another try.”

So, basically, the Bellevue Chamber got their cool East Link the last time around, so they don’t really need to “rush” this time around.

Meanwhile, terrible traffic is cited as one of the key problems facing the small business community, i.e., the group which the Chamber supposedly represents; in an April article in the Puget Sound Business Journal, gridlock was listed as the number one concern for small businesses. 

You might think, then, that the Bellevue Chamber would want to get on board with something that will demonstrably alleviate traffic. But apparently, the East Link is sufficent. 

AND THAT’S ALL I NEED.

Glad you got what you needed, Bellevue, but the rest of the region—like everyone who didn’t get service under ST2—still has a lot of transit they’d like to see built.
