Well quoted, Hoss. If only more people in L.A. thought that way.

I'll add the people in SF seem to be very polite riders as well. A few years ago, we were on a bus that was becoming increasingly crowded at each stop. An immaculately cross-dressed man (he could put Caitlyn Jenner to shame) was sitting in a seat when an older woman boarded. He was the first gentleman to give up his seat (in my defense I was already standing).
