Hey Catherine,

Re: the "T Ambassador" article -- my CharlieCard wouldn't work on the bus yesterday, and I spent (too) many hours wondering how my monthly pass just up and disappeared, and lamenting the hoops I'd have to go through to get it replaced. Oh so glad to know it's just the MBTA not being able to cope with the Cambridge winter, which has finally gotten "normal".

(The pass reappeared this afternoon, thankfully!)

I definitely have mixed feelings about the whole CharlieCard system and RFID tracking.

Of course, anyone who wants to know my travel plans deserves the boredom and waste of time that is.

He was laughing.. "don't know 1/2 of it.." was basically his comment
