BRU Top Ten List
(As delivered to the MTA board of directors on March 28, 2002 as my comments on the Supreme Court's refusal to consider an appeal of the consent decree.)
From the home office at Wilshire/Western Station ...
Top Ten Things the Bus Riders Union Will Never Understand:
#10. Riding the Red Line to MTA meetings doesn't improve your credibility
#9. There aren't enough white people on the rail lines
#8. Yellow is not a "power color" for a t-shirt
#7. There is no such thing as Cal Worthington's new bus lot
#6. Karl Marx is dead
#5. Besides, Marx said "workers of the world unite" ... not "bus riders of the world unite"
#4. Eric Mann is not God
#3. Neither is Donald Bliss
#2. People of color like Metro Rail
And the #1 thing the BRU will never understand ...
THEY'RE NOT IN CHARGE OF THE MTA!
