Oil burns in the Gulf; commuters languish in gridlock; Wall Street wobbles; and high unemployment reigns. In response the Illinois media is busy conducting a "Blago Watch" and the Illinois Senate is busy protecting taxpayers from the masses of wealthy elderly transit riders. Apparently there are thousands of millionaire senior citizens crowding the buses in Illinois to get free rides.
Why are they making such an effort to get a few seniors back on the roads? They have to prove to their fossil-fuel/autosprawl masters that they will be good trolls and do whatever possible to crush public transit. Pathetic.
