The (c)Rapid sucks so horribly. It's frequently late for trains that only run every 15-20 minutes, only two cars maximum even during rush hour, only drops you off one place downtown and benefits east siders far more than it does us west siders. Want to create jobs here? This garbage fossil of a train system badly needs updating.
You think grown ups have it all figured out? That's just a hustle, kid. Grown ups are making it up as they go along just like you. You remember that and you'll do fine.
