Event Reminders: Mapes Tonight, Albany Next Wednesday

Here's a final plug for tonight's Jeff Mapes event, also featuring Aaron Naparstek, Clarence Eckerson and Transportation Alternatives, with audience Q&A and book signing. Housing Works Bookstore Cafe at 7:00.

And today is the last day to register for next Wednesday's bus trip to Albany to lobby on behalf of MTA rescue, sponsored by the Campaign for New York's Future (register here). If you've ever been on one of these trips, you know how encouraging it is to find strength in numbers, even in the face of absolute lunacy.
