This "could put more pressure on transit officials to make system improvements or restore service that was cut three years ago."
And this is a *bad* thing? Explain.
@leonora rubin "Just read Fatal Vision people, as I wish this writer had done before writing the piece."
From the piece: "I read the three other major books on the case" (i.e., Fatal Vision, Fatal Justice, and the Journalist and the Murderer). The piece quotes McGinniss directly, providing a page number.
Also, it's McGinniss, not McGuinness.
Sure, because of course we always stop talking about interesting TV shows, novels, movies, and such as soon as the designated media window for their discussion has closed. Right?
Pretty sure Mitt and Ann left Belmont several years ago.

Net "frenzy"? Net furor, surely.
My cousins and I made "Goonies 2" in one afternoon on summer vacation when I was maybe 7. Don't know if that counts. If so, I apologize.
On The People
This reminds me of something Don DeLillo said recently:
"...for some years now I think the true American religion has been 'the American People.' The term quickly developed an aura of sanctity and inviolability. First used mainly by politicians at nominating conventions and in inaugural speeches, the phrase became a mainstay of news broadcasts and other more or less nonpartisan occasions. All the reverence once invested in the name of God was transferred to an entity safely defined as you and me. But do we still exist? Does the phrase still soar over the airwaves? Or are the American People dead and buried? It seems the case, more than ever, that there are only factions, movements, sects, splinter groups, and deeply aggrieved individual voices. The media absorbs it all."
Happy election day everyone!
Dwyane Wade is definitely Gordie Lachance.
