The Weekend Desk Report

Nice to know we won't face fare hikes or service changes next year. It would be even nicer if the CTA acknowledged the substantial fare hikes they instituted this year.

Market Update
The RTA just wasted another $383,000. We could've told them that for free.

Shame Game
For the record, it appears Governor Pat Quinn's blue-ribbon committee finds our regional transit agencies just as shameful as we do. So which do you think will pass first, transit reform or marriage equality?

Rough Trade
So Penny Pritzker is "open for business" . . . but is she open to competition? After all, competition makes everyone better, right?

Forever Young
Of course, competition is great, as long as you always know exactly who's going to win.
