Hahaha. Oh, MTA, you so CRAZY! First the fare hikes, then the incomprehensible track work that makes me think someone is just spinning a Twister wheel every weekend to decide which lines to re-route and which, BTW, never makes the tracks actually work, and now this. Seatless subways. You know, to pack more people in, make it feel more like a urine-soaked cattle car, denying straphangers everywhere the simple pleasure of wedging onseself in between two surly strangers in the unlikely event that one is able to find a place on the hard, coccyx-bruising, dishwater-gray plastic that passes for a bench. It's good to know that my $2 is going towards progress! What's next? Flintstone-like, bottomless cabs to save gas? No, REALLY, MTA. I REALLY want to know.
