Who says America's infrastructure is failing?
Still, most of our correspondents agreed that public transit is hellish. "I'm always delighted to read Muni horror stories," writes Mark Van Slyke.
"BMD -- Bad Muni Day -- is what I say to my boss as I arrive late for work," he adds. Quick thinking!
Anyway, Mark has a suggestion. And frankly, we're considering it, because we're getting tired of reading Jon Carroll and being roared at by furry ex-hippies for our trouble.
"Here's the thing," says Mark. "And the SF Weekly would be perfect for it: A Muni column. Devote a few column inches weekly to someone's Muni horror story. I'm telling you, this would be a surefire hit." Now, we realize the Ex tried this for a while, but the field seems to be open at the moment --and of course, we print profanity.
So it's reader participation time. Want to share your Muni tales? Want to read others' Muni tales? Let us know -- remember, this is your Dog Bites.
