A Device Of Satan

I am, in most cases, not a fan of using public transportation systems. I have a possibly pathological resistance to extensive waiting and being in close proximity to people. (Pfizer I'm looking your way to develop some ridiculously priced and magically effective medication.)

Ready access to a parking lot has a strong correlation to my survivability in an area and looking back, it is a minor miracle that I haven't become a complete hermit. However, with the lack of Pfizer's cooperation, I have a few years to meet that goal. 

To me, traveling by bus is like climbing into a closet and watching 'Das Boot.'

Having said all that, if you are going to commute on the bus, the following clip is the way to do it.

Mass transportation is doomed to failure in North America because a person's car is the only place where he can be alone and think.

Being sober on a bus is, like, totally different than being drunk on a bus.  
- Ozzy Osbourne

The only pleasurable part of taking the subway, as everyone will agree, is concocting elaborate fantasies about what it would be like to be married to the most interesting strangers you see there.

Never run after a man or a bus, there's always another one in five minutes.

As is typical, I finish a post and then I run across something amazing (this time posted by my sister-in-law). So here is an addendum . . . 

Heading home on the Q train yesterday when this young African American guy nods off on the shoulder of a Jewish man. The man doesn't move a muscle, just lets him stay there. After a minute, I asked the man if he wanted me to wake the kid up, but he shook his head and responded, 'He must have had a long day, let him sleep. We've all been there, right?'

Demonic or divine, sometimes an opportunity presents itself. 

Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values.
