Buses and Trains

My new commute to work is somewhat contrarian to a lot of people's commute; I live very near downtown Denver and work out in the suburbs. Actually the Tech Center is not really a suburb, but a business cluster, surrounded by 'burbs.

So most people are commuting the opposite direction, flowing into downtown. Interestingly, people on the bus and train are talking about presidential politics, and a lot. I would guesstimate that it's about 9 to 1 running pro Obama.

They really don't like McCain or Palin.

But I suppose you'd expect dirty fucking hippies who take public transportation instead of driving an SUV solo like a REAL AMERICAN to be all commie pinko like that wouldn't you?
