Bloomberg's Subways and SuburbansS

NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg is taking flak for making part of his much-ballyhooed subway ride to work in a chauffeured Suburban. His people pick him at home and drive him twenty blocks down to 59th Street, where he picks up an express train to City hall. Still, compared to Antonio Villaraigosa's trouble of late or our own often late, MTA buses here in Los Angeles, we might encourage our mayor to spend a bit more time on public transit and less dallying with reporters.
