Many subway riders occupy themselves with games on their cell phones or other devices. Other riders read books or magazines. The rest either sleep or stare off in space.
Once again, subway fares are going up, here in New York.
The once $2 per ride fare will be $2.25, starting today (Sunday). The increase is New York State's solution to the $1.8 billion dollar deficit in the transportation sector.
Bridge and tunnel tolls are going up 10 percent, too. In this economy.
On another note, here's the latest video of our dog Rupert, who just turned 11 months old. There's footage of some typical tug-of-war antics and shenanigans.
I've set up a new spot on the sidebar for his fans.
