That might make it worthwhile!

I understand "do not", but why "cannot"?

What kinds of changes might you envision that would help you consider mass transit for at least some of your transportation needs?

It seems to be kind of flying under the radar, but it was mentioned in the piece on the Ucare advertising withdrawal, so I went and found it:

I haven't yet listened to the whole thing, but here's a quote from the printed summary:

"This isn't something we did. You can blame the police and you can yell at them...

In the moments leading up to the "point", Navell and the Mayor were doing a variety of different "poses" with their hands. Just before the "point", they were both doing a "thumbs up", and then they did the "point".

The discussion is about PRESIDENTIAL candidates, and the article (which is what is being discussed here) names only one possibility on the Democratic side (they're ruling out Elizabeth Warren).

It really helps the discussion if you actually follow along . . . . . . .
