Doesn't make sense

Busing between Montserrat and Prides Crossing on the Newburyport/Rockport Line due to the strike at Beverly Farms.

I realize you're just going based off what people are reporting and what the MBTA itself is saying, but Beverly Farms is not between Montserrat and Prides Crossing. The station order: Beverly Depot, Montserrat, Prides Crossing, Beverly Farms, Manchester[-by-the-Sea]. Doesn't make sense.

We are so sorry

That you are legally required to keep your speed in check and operate your car in such a manner as to not kill the other people that you are required to share your precious roads with.

If it is that difficult for you, maybe you should consider giving up your license?
