"other zoological forms of low life"

There was a great quote in the Chronicle's story about Muni eliminating fares:


Margaret Cliver, a 50-year-old Mission District resident who commutes by bus, fears the same problems on Muni.

"Gavin Newsom must have taken a leave of his senses to even consider this. Muni is already overloaded with stinky crazies, loud-mouth-behaved louts and other zoological forms of low life. The day it becomes entirely free, it will become a dumpster on wheels, and I, along with the rest of those who currently attempt to use the system, will give up on it entirely," Cliver said.


I can't imagine someone actually saying that out loud. I wonder if this person sent an email to the Chron and the reporter quoted that email. Odd.

Heh. For what it's worth I agree with the sentiment--the buses are already too crowded as it is.

That said, I really really wish MUNI had a bus pass that could hold X number of rides on it. AC Transit does this (a 10 ride pass), which costs the same as if I actually paid for 10 rides with cash. The difference is that I don't actually have to have cash on me to ride the bus. And it's great for those of us who don't ride the bus enough to make a month pass worth buying.

I love this quote for its zeal and impropriety, and I kinda agree with it. I love the idea of free transit, but I do think it will make MUNI dirtier and more dangerous.
