This weeks photo reminds me of a pretty big story that may have been blown slightly out of proportion by the media. When I took the photo, I was simply taking a picture of a light rail car while standing near 3rd Street and Ash in Tempe. (can you guess which restaurant I was at?) Once I uploaded the photo, I noticed how prevalent Sun Devil stadium was in the shot. This reminded me that, over the last couple of weeks, I have talked to or emailed people attending or working at ASU concerning President Obama's upcoming commencement speech. Heck, I have even offered the use of our super – cool light rail map to help students and guests with their travels for the big day. Without a doubt, there are still some very important details to be worked out concerning the President's trip, and opinions at ASU appear to vary greatly on how to handle this huge event that is sure to cause quite a stir.
Should light rail be your choice of travel, we hope you will stick around to hear more about the day where 8,000 Sun Devils are set to graduate! 🙂
After all, if you are an ASU student, "your life is on the line!"
Remember… Rail Life has a "Phoenix Light Rail Group on Flickr." Basically, we want to share some of our pictures from the community and allow people to add their pics (or videos), as well. These can be light rail related, but we also want pics of your favorite spot, restaurant, sports team, community, event etc.
