Reading a news story about an effort to bring bus rapid transit to Cobb County, I came across a blast from the past. The single (as of right now) comment on the news story was this:

What a fantastic way to rapidly bring inner city crime to the northern suburbs. Please tell me this is a cruel…

Former Cobb kids unite! The fear of MARTA out there is so insane. I cried before the first time I had to take MARTA (I was a little 18-year-old baby who’d only been in the city for a few weeks!), just because I would so sure I’d get mugged. That’s what I’d always been taught would happen. Then I took a bus and a train, and realized what bullshit I’d been fed my whole life.
