Sh*t happened 4/21/15: Lyft, Trib real estate deal & marathon marriage


While you were trying not to get caught out in the rain — and possibly celebrating 4/20 the way you celebrate pretty much every other day — a few things occurred yesterday (besides my power going out).

While fighting a citation in court, ridesharing service Lyft argued that it couldn't be regulated by Hillsborough County's Public Transportation Commission because it was more of an online transactional service, like eBay, than a taxi or for-hire transportation service. Which is exactly like saying that if you contact the prostitute using a messaging app and pay the prostitute using PayPal, no one is facilitating prostitution.
