Night safety work planned at Caltrain crossings

Original post made on Jul 9, 2010

Eight Caltrain crossings in Mountain View, Palo Alto and Sunnyvale will get safety upgrades within the next year, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) announced Wednesday. The work, which started Wednesday and will occur between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m. Wednesdays through Mondays, is designed to make the crossings safer for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.

It would be nice if the writer actually could write about dates for the subject in the headline – the two Mountain View crossings.

So we have all sort of irrelevant minutia listed like the day the announcement was made yet no real dates. Is the writer paid by the word? It would be hard to use so many words to say so little, but then I suppose dumbly regurgitating press releases that I suspect deliberately have zero accountability and faking headlines is hardly writing.

So the reader has to call the hotline because that is too much for the writer? Whatever happen to journalism?

I can answer that. Journalism took a higher paying job at El Camino Hospital. We all remember how Don Francis would tell us what journalism is or isn't and his many "journalist's dilemmas".

Any way of getting VTA to cough up some drawings? Would like to know what this will look like at Castro.

Won't all this get torn up when they build the Highly Superfluous Rail?
