I was doing this in my early 50’s, I enjoyed the reading and I have no real emotional attachment to driving. The Redline would take me within half a block the my favorite bars/eaterys in Hollywood in half the time of driving. I did want to drive the subway back home sometimes, but I could never get in the drivers seat, must have been a union thing LOL
We are so off-topic here .. LOL
You know, I endured years and years of inconvenience while they were building those subways from downtown to Hollywood, but when they finally opened, I never once rode them. I think they were even free to ride for the first month they were open.

I don't know...maybe being a native California boy has something to do with my love of driving and personal mobility. Everything about it makes sense in my universe. In the pre-auto era I'm the type who would have been riding my own horse. No doubt about it.
