Another one rides the bus...

Another CTA "doomsday" is coming up on January 20th and according to the signs at each and every bus stop I've been to, they are now threatening to eliminate both: the #54 North Cicero bus and the #97 Skokie bus. These are basically the only buses I know of to take me out of Skokie on the weekends (on weekdays, I can take the yellow line train). It sucks so much, because basically, I don't think even contacting legislators is going to do much. All they do is have their secretaries send you a form letter in return, and then nothing changes. Perhaps another last minute grant will come in to bail out the CTA again -- but for how long?


  1. I really hope something comes through. If not, this will seriously bump up the date that I was planning on buying a car.

  2. Jason spoke to me! *shock & awe*

    In Me Talk Pretty One Day or in Naked? I don't recall that from Naked, but it's been over two years since I read it. I just read MTPOD a few months ago, though, and there was nothing like that in there. Maybe it's in Holidays On Ice. I have yet to read that one.

    Yeah, if you wanna know what's up, you'll have to write me an email. I will say that, while stressed, I am doing ok.

  3. I just wanted to let you know I really like your blog...especially all of the book references. I've built quite a reading list from your site. So, thanks!

  4. Thank you so much! It's always nice to know that people are reading what I post here. ;)
