MARTA: My Inconvenient Truth

Cheers to Al Gore for creating the internet AND for coining the phrase Inconvenient Truth.  Thanks to him, I am able to share my favorite Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) stories and photos with everyone in the WWW (whole wide world).  After almost 8 years of riding the train to and from work every day, I have a lot of photographic ammunition stashed away in my camera gun….

P.S.  what I really wish I had documented photographically is every commuter dude who has hit on me since the first time I climbed aboard a MARTA bus back in 1992.  There would be a definitive dental trend in the depictions of these suitors.  And their fascination with my hair is, well, hair-raising…especially when they want to touch it.

Thank goodness it was just a kid with his dad - MARTA riding requires mindfulness

MARTA trying to mesmerize me into calmness with a psychedelic screen saver.  Wish they'd use those signs to tell me when the next train was coming.

Black bags are common on MARTA but usually they are not taking up a whole seat and typically they are the plastic ones from the liquor store
