Transit and Tasties
I am not happy about the SEPTA increase. I already pay far too much for my Zone 2 pass. I would love to know exactly how they ended up in a hole this deep and why no one is holding them accountable for trimming fat off the top instead of screwing customers harder. With their budget deficit you’d expect their corporate offices to be a few cubicles with a single buzzing, flickering light bulb in a cheap rent district. I have a feeling things at 1234 Market Street are quite cozy. Have they slashed their management? Have the top tiers taken pay cuts? Why the heck did they open a transit museum instead of saving money? I’m baffled. They need to get an Office Space style consulting firm in there to slash and burn.
On a lighter note, I came across this concise and useful guide to shopping in a farmer’s market today from wannaveg.com. One of their tips is to ask for recipes, so you can make your own yummies. This will come in especially handy if you enjoyed dining at Astral Plane. The cozy little spot served their last meal this past weekend and is now up for sale.
