Personally, I like the fact that the city's "Transit First" policy is finally getting some teeth.
But there are so many other reasons this story can put a smile in your heart.
It's really the perfect symbol for both (a) the Newsom Administration and (b) MUNI.
The fact that Newsom expressly justified getting this vehicle for security purposes is also pretty damn hilarious, when you think about it.
The fact that it happened while he was conducting a campaign interview also strikes me as worth a chuckle.
The fact that this is probably the most attention Gavin has paid to transit issues since becoming Mayor is pretty priceless.
I'm sure there's lots - feel free to suggest anything I've missed. --Benjamin Wachs
