Things about Bend that I don’t like

So, continuing in my “Things I X about Bend” series:

I don’t like…

  • …the traffic; the disproportionate amount of congestion and the bad drivers.
  • …not having a mass transit system.
  • …how the north end of town is a stripmall/boxstore eyesore.
  • …skyrocketing real estate prices.
  • …the roundabouts. Actually, I’m kind of on the fence about them; they’re not inherently bad but do we really need so many of them?
  • …overpriced “public” art. Like the “gateway to Bend” thing on the parkway made from rusty scrap metal.

What else?
