Wrong responses

The Turnpike faces debt problems because of declining revenue due to declining usage and the Commonwealth responds by guaranteeing its debt. The MBTA faces crowding issues because of increased ridership — fiscal 2008 ridership set a new record: 375 million riders, up by 21 million riders (6%) from 2007 — and Charlie-in-Chief Grabauskas is considering taking seats out of some cars to make more room for rush-hour sardines commuters.

Sometimes, this stuff just gets embarrassing.
