Yikes... It's Them

So I come into my Urban Transportation Planning class tonight (a few minutes late, thanks to traffic on Figueroa that made my 81 bus late) and find a girl from the Bus Riders Union presenting about an upcoming conference they're holding. Normally I'm pretty hesitant to express unequivocal dislike here, but I don't like the BRU. I ride buses all the time, and as of a couple days ago I guess I'm officially "transit-dependent", but when it comes to the BRU... well... I just don't like them. I'm sure they had a place back in the time of the consent decree, but the BRU these days is just a little nuts.
