People on BART
I love riding transit. It's at its most interesting when people are cramped into the crush load at rush hour. A 10 car train comes every 4-6 minutes and people of all sorts rush on. There are people with crazy hair, nervous nellies that can't stop tapping their feet and little artists going to the city for inspiration yet live in the suburbs. It's a humanizing experience. Everyone has to compromise about where to stand and where to move and to let someone a little more fragile sit down. It's something everyone should experience.
