F*ck you, you peice of incompetent and unreliable garbage.

They are waste time installing cameras into the train stations but then remove booth clerks. That makes a lot of sense doesn’t it.

According to MTA Chairman and CEO Jay Walder, fare increases could have been much larger given the size of the budget shortfall for 2010 if other efforts had been unsuccessful. But *AHEM* I have a CRAZY idea. How about you CUT your MILLION dollar bonuses? I mean, I’m not an accounting major but I do SUSPECT that you may see some benefits if you redirect that money.
