Here in Boston we’ve got a subway system that is in bad need of an upgrade. It was a disaster the winter before last when our city got so hammered by snow. There’s been a lot of promises of improvements since then.
Today, as I was riding a rusty sided train in from the suburb of Brookline, I happened to see this plaque attached to the back of the driver’s compartment designating the maker of the car I was sitting in.
Apparently improvements are still some way off.
