Another day, another clusterfuck of a commute.
this weekend sucked for commuting. Trains were infrequent, thus packed, and apparently it was national "bring your space ship sized stroller onto the subway" weekend, because holy crap I was bombarded by strollers on EVERY single ride.
Some key midwest cities seem to be covered by "Not Available" so I'm not sure we have the final word on this theory.

Rats are traveling the streets of NY in gangs, running up and down people's legs and the next mayor of New York is basing his entire campaign on . . . income inequality.
I think there is only one reason why New York sucks. A majority of the residents are completely loopy.
The rats aren't your problem; the reptiles in office are.
Saturday was a great day to try the Airtrain for the first time. Pause. Not.
i can't deal with my own luggage and the subway and/or most any train. I'll pay the $45 for a taxi that'll go right from the terminal to my front door.
You know, just once, I'd like to have a commute that is not a complete and utter disaster.
My cousin was on it - she was the realtor for a San Fran couple moving to Oakland, obsessed with an earthquake proof home. The couple was already in escrow on the house they "chose" when HH approached them. HH filmed my cousin taking them back through houses they had already rejected
Ok, here's a real question: on Thursday I need to go meet someone for dinner in the DUMBO zone. Do I go, or feign illness?
Take the ferry. Surprisingly easy.
The MTA should just do the honorable thing and immolate itself, or commit sepuku, whatever fits best with its cultural conception of itself.
Again, today--trains a disaster. "Signal problems." This is three rush hour rides in a row, and four in the last three business days, that have been a complete disaster.
I honestly want to know what they are spending their money on, because it sure as hell isn't on running a functioning transit system.
i've had good luck with multiple rides the past two days, so that means tonight will inevitably be a disaster.
