    Who would want to take pictures of the T? It's ugly and it smells.

    If ever there was an organization that has more money than brains, morals or common sense, it's the ACLU.

    Btw, the last time I rode the T. I thought it was very clean. And no bad smells. Was I just lucky?

    How about reading the ACLU's actual letter, which had to do with concerns about passanger civil rights not photography at the station. Here's the letter: http://www.aclu.org/privacy/spying/15231res20040610.html

    There is NO threat of a lawsuit, just a request for a meeting to discuss concerns. I think many of you will actually find the ACLU's questions and concerns to be very reasonable. Please read the letter, the title of this thread is extremely misleading.

    Hell, let em. Everyone in Boston would be happy. The T probably does more damage now then any terrorist attack could. Do a quick job at 3 AM so that no one gets hurt. Then the city would have to do something.
