The T, She is a-changin'

I got to ride in one of the new T test cars on the ride home from work today. The strap handles feel very Rhoda to me while the seat pattern feels more a cross between Saved by the Bell, Square Pegs, and Miami Vice. The only real problem I see is that 1, the seats are wicked ugly and, 2, someone could spill something on them or pee in them and you wouldn't know it, whereas on the pleather seats of old, there would be a big puddle.

Also, T operators? I wouldn't brag about how vandalism-resistant they are.

I like how the guy in the press release is named Grabauskas, because it kind of looks like Grab ass kiss.

Strap handles? Miami Vice upholstery? Did the Orange Line renovation plans come out of a time capsule from 1986?

I think they did, and I think they were installed by Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas.

There's even a seat for each of them, plus one for Tiger, or Kitty Carryall
