packin em in

east coast subway riders usually marvel at how empty the l.a. trains are.  if you're willing to make someone else move, you can almost always get a seat.  so, how do you pack a train in l.a.?  simple.  let one train break down.  here's what a train, even in car-centric l.a., can look like when all the passengers of one train are packed on to the next train.

when gas prices spiked back in the summer of '08, i actually witnessed scenes like this pretty regularly even without a break down.  supply and demand, i guess.  more econ coming up in a future post.
