I've got an internet friend, Sarah Horrocks, who is a transwoman who makes wierdo comics and writes articles about obscure films. She lives in Oklahoma, and I find it bizarre. However, I guess living there is cheap enough that you can be an artist and have the time to work on your art while also having enough money to survive.

Unlike NYC.

Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 5:34pm northguineahills:

Most other subways aren't 24/7, but your point stands...
Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 5:34pm TehBadDr:

You should try thew DC Metro for a while. You'd welcome the stink and noise of the NY Subway very soon!
  Thu. 8/3/17 5:35pm Marie:

Jon. Chicago's public transit system has suffered greatly over the years from lack of maintenance and cost-cutting. It's working better now but it still sucks in many ways. The CTA treats their workers like burdens, costs.
Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 5:36pm Mary Wing:

Nobody ever mentions all the advertising revenue that the MTA gets--there is advertising on EVERYTHING in the subways, the buses, the bus shelters, even the damn Metrocards have advertising on them! Where's all THAT money going?

(Great show, Jonathan)
Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 5:36pm Cecile:

That memory for some reason is very fresh to me. I remember just about every minute of that day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/3/17 5:36pm Michael 98145:

that's okay, our transit infrastructure will soon be -yuge- - yuge-

The MTA, generally speaking, to me, works much better overall (except for the last few months here).

Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 5:38pm northguineahills:

A while back, I was trying to figure the price of advertising at MTA subway stops based on geographical location (just out of curiosity and I worked for a company that had a valid reason to ask), . Yes, that revenue is insane.
Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 5:39pm Cecile:

I think the revenue carries us (in MN) when other things are cut.
Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 5:39pm dale:

dr. zizmor must have been rolling in dough then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/3/17 5:39pm Michael 98145:

i remember visiting anchor steam back when they first started. the folks were -amazed- anyone would want to visit a brewery...
Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 5:40pm Mary Wing:

Seriously, NGH, it must be kerjillions of bucks; none of which is going to maintain the infrastructure.
Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 5:40pm northguineahills:

lol dale, I could use a good dermatologist if I was in NYC.
Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 5:40pm dale:

this reminds me of a soundtrack i once heard on a showing of fritz langs metropolis.
Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 5:41pm Mary Wing:

Um it's very costly to run that large and old a system 24/7. It works surprisingly well, till there's a fire in a tunnel or a trapped train. I remember crossing from the express 7th Ave to the platform I think at around 50th St? 'Cause the train broke down, no air etc...this was back in the 80's

I'm no longer up there, but I heard they're closing the L to fix the salt water damage i(Hurricane Sandy) in the E River tunnel. That won't effect real estate prices once people realize their commute times have doubled. Is that true?
