We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

It's the end of an era in London. Today was the final day of the beloved Routemasters double-decker buses that were as much a part of the London view as Big Ben, the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace. Most of the buses are going on 40 years old and weren't designed to accommodate wheelchairs. They're legendary for people hopping on and off.
NPR ran a story on All Things Considered this evening. They plan on keeping a few running for the nostalgia/tourist thing but won't run regular bus routes any more. The hopping on and off will be one of the biggest losses to accommodate those wheelchairs. Also going will be the conductor who helps people be seated, get directions etc. The only person there will be the driver and the electronic scanner.
