Boys is this nice. Really, what has to be the greatest thing happening around here? You know the whole country has its eyes on this operation. I think it s going to revolutionize our whole system of transportation. It s going to change the entire economic structure of the Bay Area. You know it s a tremendous ride, it s like going right into the future, it s just great. Boy and what a future too. Just sit back and read or relax. It s great. I know one thing more people are going to be home in time to watch our six o clock commuter news. Oh yeah, right. But you know, I kinda miss the old personal touch.
