    The LA Times article on sexual harassment on Metro reminds me of my first wife. As a teenager, she used the local bus system (Pasadena City Lines) to get around Monrovia and Pasadena. After a number of unpleasant experiences on the bus, she scraped together enough money to buy a third hand Kaiser sedan–even though she was the only child of a widowed mother. I don’t think she ever set foot on a bus after that. One day when we were driving through Monrovia, she pointed out a man sitting on a bus bench and identified him as the weirdo who harassed young women and teenage girls on the local buses. I was tempted to stop and give this sleazoid a sound thrashing, but figured the jail time wasn’t worth it, and it could have been a case of mistaken identity.
