something I forgot to mention: this time on Megabus, there was no mention of alcohol during the "safety talk" after leaving San Jose. this was a welcome change, and I'm wondering if it might have something to do with competition from Bolt Bus, a company copying Mega's strategy right down to the $1 tickets. and that got me thinking that competition in the realm of politics might be a way of turning back the seemingly inexorable countdown to tyranny. only where there are no alternatives can people be forced to accept fewer and fewer freedoms year after year.

anyway, I found out Metrolink has a $10 day pass on Saturdays and Sundays. if I just schedule my travel on the weekend, I can go from LA to Oceanside for $10 right from Union Station and vice versa.
