Break the Strike

If Bloomberg and Pataki had any balls (which Pataki certainly doesn't and Bloomberg rarely does), they would call out the national guard to run the buses until replacements could be hired and trained. MTA management could run the trains (which could be done with much fewer workers by leaving the token booths empty and letting people ride for free). It would probably take a few months to get the system up and running with new workers, but the investment would be worth it.

Longer term, let's do what San Francisco and Paris have done and automate the subways so that no human operators are required.

As for the strikers; let them find other jobs where they can be "respected."
