    After all, even a seasoned transit advocate can drive a point into the ground, right?

    After all, not all transit advocates support the Arizona law.

    After all, it’s not like there aren’t any other companies capable of handling this sort of technology.

    Ugh, I can’t take it anyone. This is like a cross between Yakoff Smirnoff and Yoda-speak. “After all, in Soviet Russia, like you Yoda speaks”

    I can’t even tell if Ken supports the red light traffic camera or not. I don’t. I think the cursed things don’t always work right and that they cost more than they’re worth.

    Just…. try to write legibly next time, okay?
