Here's to Public Transpo!
This is no joke. While I've never been on a train that packed. I have ridden on a bus that full. One of the tactics the busses do is idle forward a little bit and then slam on the brakes so everyone expels the air from their lungs and compress forward a little bit. This makes slightly more room in the back of the bus for others to get pressed inside. Clearly Al Gore is on to something. Public transportation is better for the environment, therefore we should be willing to make sacrifices such as overcrowding in order to improve the life quality of trees and the spotted owl. Of course by making sacrifices he means that he will cut down on his Gulfstream G5, and personal limousine ridership, because we all have to make sacrifices in our own way, at our own individual levels.
