Last night I was visiting someone with a TV and when the news came on they had a scary presentation of the danger to us of using public transit. They said the government couldn't protect us against terrorists attacks on public transit. They said that in the past few years 450 people had been killed on public transit by terrorist acts- worldwide. I waited for the presenters to point out that in the US alone around - what? 40,000? - people are killed in car accidents per year to put the story in perspective but they didn't. Did anyone else see this? What decision did the news organization expect the viewers to make in response to the story? Maybe that kind of reporting will get people out of the subway and onto their bikes?
