It's damned sad actually ... After the thirty plus years whwen *I* worked for the "MTA" and the realroad THUCKED ... "only reason anyone goes on the subway is to *DIE*" ... here the MTA finally has something SUFFICIENTLY proud of for a COMMERCIAL enterprise to make the rickety-rack subway (ever BEEN to Smith9th? Ever SEEN the "wreckage above" from street level? AGGGH!) and HONOR it by incorporating their location as part of a theme?

Any *OTHER* place than new york would take political PRIDE in "wow, we're doing OK if businesses are USING us for our mutual advantage - they stuff our coffers, WE get recognition for all the work we've done the past few decades!" ... PERFECT photo-op for TWU and the politicos.

AH ... but *THIS* is new york ... small-minded pencil dicks with so LITTLE to do for what the taxpayers are paying them in abundance that they have to do *THIS* ... ummmm ... fare hikes needed owing to taxpayer WASTE? Ummmmmm ... I think I just spotted something that needs a bit of budget trimming. :)

It'd be ONE thing if they were mass-marketing goods at the expense of the MTA gift-shop ... if this really *IS* the excuse for all this, then the museum can pyth up a rope for another penny. I can OPERATE subway trains at Branford and Kingston ... and can I at Court street? Methinks not ... you're the weakest link, byebye. :(
