bad design, all one has to do is look
closely at the palo alto station, and
how is the station going to be kept
clean and graffti free? all one has to
do is look at thev101 overpass structure, and the union pacific freight
cars, there is a gang of 8-10 taggers
who visit the station area, every night,
in closing, anyone remember the
promises that were made regarding
the north access road shelter? and
how did that turn out?
