4/30    Free public transit in the Bay Area today!
        \_ I'm surprised that there was no surge in BART ridership on Monday.
           Usually there's a surge during Spare-The-Air free-transit days.

7/29    Is it really true that we subsidize auto driving to the tune of
        $5k/yr? Shit I could probably hire a private driver for less...

        \_ You might have missed the point.  Hiring a chauffeur to drive your
           private vehicle won't change the amount of gasoline your private

2/10    Does anyone have an authoritative URL that shows the % of people
        in the Bay Area who commute via foot, bike, car, BART, and Caltrains?
        In particular I'd like to look at trend as well.

8/13    One greedy BART union going on strike next Monday:
        http://www.bart.gov/news/articles/2009/news20090813a.aspx
        \_ No, not really. It is just a negotiating tactic.
        \_ You know what, BART's troubles do have a little to do with union pay,
           but its mostly BARTs expansion mission instead of dealing with

7/12    Turns out that BART management has been lying to the public and
        the press about salaries, whoops!
        http://www.contracostatimes.com/danielborenstein/ci_12619817
        \_ Why do the janitors make $28.09 per hour in California where
           there is plenty of cheap labor and at those prices why are
           the BART restrooms almost always nasty? To me that's ridiculous.
