I’m not planning to live in #SoCal by then, but I’m still no fan of bringing the #Olympic_Games to #Los_Angeles in 2028. I realize that will be 44 years since the last time the games were held here in #1984, but the whole area needs to focus on _rapid_ public transportation (I am someone who used to commute 5-6 hours per day to and from work, so I know what I’m talking about) and not be distracted by building giant new stadiums 🏟 and swimming pools 🏊♀️ that public entities then have to rent out and maintain.

@lnxw48a1 5-6 hours commute per day?!!!

That's fucking insane!


@dvdmrsdn @lnxw48a1 I had alert banners this morning for the bureau's offices in LA & San Diego. Due to problems at those federal buildings it is taking 1-2 hours to clear the security lines to get inside. The field commands weren't getting answers from FPS or GSA as to causes.

Thankfully those particular bureau employees don't have to enter/exit those buildings constantly during the day.

@alpacaherder If there is also an office in Hawaii, they probably were also doing the extra security thing, just because these locations would be closest to where the recent terror incident happened in NZ.


@lnxw48a1 @dvdmrsdn The bureau's face-to-face offices in Hawaii are barely staffed. I almost took a temporary commission out there. If the LA/San Diego thing was security-related, FPS Megacenter would've put all the FOBs on alert but they're not. Another tenant agency getting very high traffic was our guess and, based on the locales, we assumed ICE as well as Enforcement Removal Operations.
