Boston shouldn't care about tourism anymore so why does it matter? Transit sucks. MBTA is an embarrassment.

It's not the tourists than need that information. It's the commuters.

Also, I wish people would disabuse themselves of this notion that other major transit systems are fairing better than the T.

The metro transit police have issued covid citations for mask violations to the tune of 74,000. The MBTA transit police have issued covid citations for mask violations to the tune of 0.

That is a thing of beauty.

- Cleveland Circle to Cleveland shuttle
- extending the IRT #1 (or restoring the old #9) to Ashmont
- repurposing Amtrak NEC in NJ to subway

I'm amused by the fact that the outline of the "subways of North America" looks like South America.

"CMS" means "content management system."

Speaking of content companies, that's the old headquarters of the New York Sun (of Yes, Virginia... fame in the background (besides realizing the location, the distinctive clock/sign is visible if you blow up the photo - look next to the window above the PICARD ad in the background).
Makes one wonder what would have happened to Virginia's letter and the reply if some "content company" had crossed connections.
