    Unfortunately this is too parochial for most of us.

    Dude get over yourself people are two narrow minded to know that the rails systems are down or at least not working at full capacity.

    You either think to much of yourself or to little of others.

    “No, your comment is too self-serving. ed is right, this is a localized subject and as ed eloquently protested, the toon is too parochial for the other 48 states (Joyzee is connected to the NYC transit system)”.

    How is it self serving. I live in the what you call the other 48 states and I can understand the trains are not working. and you repeated the word parochial which means:
    Def:
    Having a limited or narrow outlook or scope.

    So you think people can’t understand the trains aren’t working?

    Oh and I almost forgot, what do yo mean about the other 48 states. You think only two states have Mass Transit? The states I know about myself are New York, Illinois, Texas, Georgia, California and Washington both DC and the state.

    Just an observation – his ‘toons are getting a lot like Gahan Wilson’s.

    Gahan Wilson is one of the greats, but Toles has his own style — less grotesque, less manneristic, but right to the point.

    It is a local issue, but the Metro is SO poorly run right now that Toles can’t help himself. And there doesn’t seem to be much improvement on the horizon. For those of you out of the DC area, you may well see more like this.

    Toles deals with national and local issues. We just get both. If it isn’t to your liking no one is forcing you to comment on it.

    Toles has done Metro comics 3-4 times in the last several weeks. Not knowing his location, I took this to be DC. I agree that cartoonists have several constituencies, but sometimes the local angle gets lost in translation. God bless and keep the victims of Sandy!I spent several spring breaks and summer vacations with my ex in-laws in Lavalette and Seaside Heights. Looking at the destruction just tears me up.

    Gee if you just look at the side bar you will see that Tolls cartoons are for the Washington Post.

    Since it is Washington, which I surmised, why did the conversation veer into NYC?

    Since it is DC, as I surmised,why did the conversation get hijacked to NYC?

    You’re right, it’s going to be a while before the subway system in lower Manhattan is working. They will have to bring in a big fleet of buses, and the traffic will be just unbelievable. I like New York and I’ve got a lot of friends in the city. I feel for everyone there.

    Now if Toles were promoting it as something that would run like clockwork if it were “privatized” then you would see enthusiastic crowing from the usual contingent.
