Too bad cleaning the bathrooms on Metro North cars is the last concern. Most time, they smell like rotting flesh. Strange how the more money their union is paid, the less that gets done.

Safety is should be important, but even with the "lax"speed conntrols my train ( 8:03 from scarsdale) is late 90% of the time. We have even re-named it the 8:08, which of course according to "federal standards" mean the train is not technically late. Tell that to my boss.
