Why I Hate Mass Transit

As long as some newspaper somewhere allows me to pontificate in a corner, I will always favor widening highways to building mass transit systems. And here's the biggest reason why.

Under threat of legal action, more than 30,000 New York City transit workers went on strike early Tuesday, shutting down the nation's largest public transportation system just days ahead of Christmas.

"Transit workers are tired of being underappreciated and disrespected," said TWU President Roger Toussaint. "The Local 100 executive board has voted overwhelmingly to extend strike action to all MTA properties immediately."

It's also one more reason why I recommend doing your Christmas shopping online.
