01:57 pm - your thot for today
groggenspiel and others may wish to imagine this being read, sing-song, by Carl Kasell.

The MBTA's run by jerks
Who fetishize bad service quirks
Such as needless delay
And ombudsmen who say
"Well that's just how the whole system works."

To be fair: The Framingham-Worcester commuter rail line is now being run with EXACT, TO-THE-MINUTE precision. I've been very impressed, since in the past three years, they've been up to 20 minutes late sometimes. This is SO much better.

And yes, I intend on writing them a letter saying THANK YOU, AND WOULD YOU MIND DOING THIS ON THE REST OF THE SYSTEM? Because this is my last year in Worcester, so after May it won't benefit me at all.

I would totally have to agree. I sometimes sit at Downtown crossing, waiting for the Red line to show up. It will arrive but stop before entering the station.

Like Ooo. If I actually stop in the station and open the doors, people could make their connection to the orange line, so let me just sit here where everyone who wants to get off can see the station, and everyone that wants to get on can see the train but never the two shall meet. At least as long as you could be on time.

On the Orange Line they blame everything on invisible gremlins who make Signal Problems.
