Bus Stories: Takin’ It To The Streets:
I was in Boston early last month and caught Mike Daisey at the Zero Arrow Theater doing a monologue on, among other things, a history of the New York City subway system. He described how the board meets to listen to public input on MTA policies and schedules, current and under consideration. Afterwards, they retire to a boardroom and make the decisions they’d already decided on before the public meeting.
This is how I understand government works. So, naturally, Greg Payne’s letter was a disillusioning experience.
