Muni Transit Overhaul; More Sarah Palin …

by on October 24, 2008

To the Editor:

As you know, the Municipal Transit Authority approved the proposals (with some modifications) of the Transit Effectiveness Project. As a result of this project, the 3 Jackson bus line and the 26 Valencia will be discontinued. This is a disaster, because the physically helpless will have to walk long distances to catch a bus. The MTA has not addressed this problem. With the criteria of their partner, the Controller’s Office, they measured services in ridership and usage and not human need. I would like to see some articles on this subject.

A rifle in one hand
And skirts to your knee,
OK in Alaska,
A bust as VP.

You love your relations,
And stick to the law,
Except when it comes
To your brother-in-law.

You’ve plenty of charm
And you’re certainly pretty,
But you’ve not had to manage
Any really big city.

You’ve not been to Russia,
Baghdad or Great Britain.
International leader?
You’re just a wee kitten.

You’re not above spreading
Political sleeze
In the hope your opponents
Just fall to their knees.

The right to abortion?
Your position’s no mystery.
If you get elected,
Roe v Wade becomes history.

If you get to the White House,
The Dems will all grieve.
Forget flailin’ on Palin!
We’re bailin’ – let’s leave!
