Among the questions asked while leaning conspiratorially forward: "Is this a sad reflection on today's society?" Why, yes, Jean, it is. In fact, we feel that everything about today's society reflects sadly on it. And: "isn't this a nightmare scenario for a driver?" Hmm, we have a sneaky suspicion that when it's all pieced together, the story's sympathies might not lie with the beleaguered rider.

Well anyway, in the end, all we can say is: Good. Good, and it's about time that the traditional media oligarchy stood up and started paying attention to the overlooked news that really matters: local jerks who tried to sneak onto a bus over a month ago.
