So much time spent on that commute, daily, rain or shine, especially for suburban train riders. That's 2 classes a day you can be taking to improve your knowledge and skills, perhaps earn a degree.

Done in cooperation with your neighborhood transit authority and community college, with classes designed specifically to be ingested on your portable device.

       I download "in our time" and listen on headphones while riding the bus. There are also some good lectures at Oxford Podcasts you can get a mp3s. I tried Ronsheim's lectures on music but they were less suitable for bus listening.

       You had a lucky escape. Most people agree that the Ents were made up by Tolkien.

       In theory there is no difference between theory and practice.

       [+] but unless you're planning on having everybody be on the transit at the same time some people are going to miss bits.

       When I lived in San Francisco this would have been incredibly lovely for riding on BART. But now that I am stuck here in the cornfields of hell, and there is no mass transit, except for a couple scary buses. it wouldn't do me much good. A 2 second class would be about the size of it. From one side of town to the next.   

       So a sentimental bun for you, for bringing back memories of riding the rails.
