I don't believe that San Jose even has a mass transit system....so we already have better public transportation than the heart of the Silicon Valley.

Edit: further research shows San Jose does have a light rail system. I had never heard of it before.

That may be true, but it doesn't apply to MARTA. It has its own police force and as a frequent rider, I see them.

LOL. Nice copy and paste. Saw you comment the exact same thing in another thread.

I guess this one was the original now that I see the time stamp.

Has anyone compared Lenox square before and after the train station? I don't think the young people hanging out there without buying much have helped the bottom line at all. On weekends it's hard to do much real shopping with all the kids hanging out. I'd say the train has driven my dollars elsewhere.

Robber thinks, I want to do a home invasion to get a new TV. Takes Marta to your home, breaks in, steals TV and waits at the bus stop for 30 minutes for the next bus! Lol. Marta goes to Buckhead, Sandy Springs, and North Fulton. They're all still doing just fine.

Funny that you zone in right on my quote and mines alone. But the original "panhandler near the MARTA station" comment on this thread?

You leave it totally alone.

You hear those dogwhistles pretty well, don't you? And you bark right on cue.

Man, I so love the south!

I singled you out because you assume that the "anti-transit due to race/crime etc." crowd is limited to the South (and yes I saw the original quote, that person sucks).

If you don't like it here and want to move to a more "enlightened" part of the country, Delta is ready when you are.

You even complete it with a typical pinhead dittohead quote. Besides that, I'm here to fight the southernization insanity at its roots. Because this mental rot is pretty much infesting the whole country, if not the world.

Just ask the Iraqis how they feel about a southerner name Bush. I highly doubt Delta will be much of a savior to them.

So much to your chagrin, I won't be taking your advice.

So shove it, K?

Thaaaaanks.

Probably about the same as they feel about a Hawaiian named Obama.
