Hello all,

         The damage in LA is much more severe: missing segments of 
freeways, roads gone.
         I thought the bot was supposed to be "smart" enough to 
subnstitute TIGER data when eliminating data by nonsigners. But that 
has not been done. I am finding many streets (and not ones too new to 
be in TiGER) that simply have been deleted. This is very 
disappointing and, to my mind, wrongheaded. Poorly done!
         Why did the bot people never talk to anyone working on LA? 
That would have been important since it is an area with so much damage.
