Out the Other Ear MBTA!

Over at T Rage! there's plenty of coverage and commentary on the recent Boston version of the MBTA fare-hike hearing. The organizer of the boycott turned rally has the fullest report on the hearing in part 1, part 2 and part 3.

Mike Mennonno has by far the most complete running commentary almost to the mumbling end. He stayed nearly an hour longer than I and took detailed notes.

You have your Deval denigration, your crazies slurs, and your snarky comments on individual testimony. It's like you watched it on CCTV in a bar with a tipsy chum.

By the bye, he thought my comment for a fully subsidized T wouldn't work. He figured hooligans would trash vehicles and stations more if they didn't have to pay something. Huh? His granny must of talked like that.

I do recommend all three parts in order. Reading it might inspire you to send your comments to the MBTA email while the public input sked permits (June 30 deadline).
