    I know the era ended a while back, but the stories about changing fees for the T in Boston gave me a brief and warm recollection of one of my early experiences when I arrived many years ago — and got a Mexican coin (maybe 3 pesos? I don’t recall the denomination) as a token from the T window at Harvard Square. I asked about it, and the person behind the window shrugged and said that it would work fine — and it did. So I had an archaeologist friend of mine pick up a large handful of those coins when he was in Mexico, about 5 cents each as I recall, and rode the T for that discount for the four years I spent in town. Clearly those days are past!

    When stories erupt concerning Trump’s miserable choices for virtually every post, one has to wonder WHO would risk working with/for him as to their careers and reputations? My feeling since Pence is that NOBODY would, but losers and sycophants, many of whom are shot down when interviewed by their miserable backgrounds and incompetence, matching his own; and that’s the problem: not his choices, but the choices made by contestants for whatever post we’re discussing.
