I'm not like all those anonymous commenters.
@foxbat91 But are transit workers "overpaid" at all? How much should they make? There seems to be some sort of unspoken assumption in our society that public employees and blue-collar workers should only get a lower middle class salary at most.
@Bill Peschel Please explain exactly why BART workers should not make $80-130K, and how much you think they should make instead. Thanks.
@Niko Bellic I dunno. To me she sounds, if not exactly ashamed, at least fully aware that she had been a young fucking idiot.
I wonder how many birds are killed by pollution from coal-burning plants?
Sounds great to me. "Everyone else just uses their balconies for storage, so when I hang out on mine I don't have to listen to their crappy music and moronic conversations."
@lbf For what it's worth, DC's Capital Bikeshare is also used by residents more than by tourists.
@hershmire So, hershmire, wanting to feel needed in a time of fear grants you carte blanche to act like an idiot and potentially endanger innocent people? I'll have to remember that if I'm ever charged with drunk driving.

I too was a 12-year-old who had that issue! Lots of imagery from "Johnny Mnemonic" stuck firmly in my brain long after I forgot the author's name. Nine years later, when every SF fan knew who William Gibson was, I recognized the story in the Burning Chrome collection and realized that I was once briefly ahead of the curve but never did anything with it. Typical. He's still one of my favorite writers, though.
