Free Riders

Here in Illinois, as elsewhere, our mass transit finances are in a mess.  But our governor demands that "seniors" be allowed to ride for free!

Of course, this will actually reduce the money coming into the transit agency.  Brilliant.

When you decide to give away
All sorts of goodies to those with gray,
Someone, somewhere, has to pay.

Of course it's the young
Who end up stung.
