  1. I saw the headline on the P-I site, and my first thought was, that’s gotta be Beacon Hill. So much crack on the buses here, even the drivers are selling it.

  2. My favorite comment on the P-I discussion about this was:

    “Do you know if this is the Route 42 driver who talks to himself and laughs maniacally as he drives and also asks everyone who boards, almost without exception, if they’re ‘ready to go fishin’?'”

  3. That guy is awesome! He’s usually really sweet. It seems like he only ask about the fishin’ if its rainin’.
    I typically see him when I get on in the afternoon at the end of his shift. Several times he’s stopped in the middle of the street (Dexter Ave) to save the time of pulling over to the curb and then pushed me behind the line, telling me not to pay so that he can get going again faster.
