Here's a fun excercise:
Go to http://www.mapquest.com/ and plug in the start and stop address for your morning commute. Scroll down and look at the estimated time it will take.
Now go to http://www.trimet.org/ and do the same thing.
When your on the bus/max you can spend that extra hour commute time talking earnestly to your favorite city planner/urban designer because I'm sure that they are taking mass transit to their job. Really sure.
