Wine-Soaked Mid-Week Post

So, buddy steals a bus and drives himself home. Don't think the idea hasn't crossed my mind. OK, not really, but here's the scoop...busses stop running too early and cabs are too expensive!
Just the other day I was enjoying some local music at Times Changed. The kickass band (Andrew Neville and the Poor Choices, get to know them) didn't finish playing till about 1:30am Saturday morning. The last bus leaves downtown at aprx. 1:25 (that goes anywhere past the Concert Hall). So, the choice was walking or hailing taxi. My lazy ass chose the cab. So, from St. Mary and Main to Henderson and Johnson it was over $8!!! Really? For a 5 minute ride? It makes you wonder if Shammy is getting a kickback!
So, let's run transit busses till 2:30 a.m. and not only will us drunken hillbilly's not have to walk but the drunken North Kildonan kids won't have to drive and kill one of our friends.
Hmm...1st Campaign issue???
