The Outraged Liberal ponders the perfomance of T General Manager Dan Grabauskas:
... Not enough locomotives, no air conditioning -- the usual litany. Grabuskas, Romney's hand-picked person for the general manager's job (and someone who doesn't take the T to work) was supposed to clean up the system and make it sparkle.
I guess one person's management whiz is another person's political hack. ...
Mike Hillwig reports on a dysfunctional Blue Line this morning (the day after the Blue Line just wasn't running at all for a time):
... We stopped once between Wood Island and Airport, once between Airport and Maverick, and five times between Maverick and Aquarium. Five times! There is something the T isnâ€™t telling us because they're running on a single track on some spots along the blue line.
Beetle expresses a bit of dissatisfaction with North Shore commuter-rail service in these post-Big-Dig-collapse days:
So, how has the good ol' MBTA responded to this sudden influx of riders paying piles of additional cold hard cash into their coffers each day? Increase the number of trains during rush hour maybe? Or perhaps add a couple of additional cars to the trains servicing the North Shore? Or simply placing a maintanence priority on the North Shore line to ensure that trains do not break down?
WRONG!!! The answer is simple; Pack the additional cash paying suckers on the regularly scheduled, frequently un-airconditioned, often broken down trains, and stuff the extra income gained into their FAT GLUTTONOUS PIG WHORE FACES!! ARRRRRRRRGHGHGHGHGHGHHGHG!!!!!!! ...
