Goodbye to double deckers

It's kind of unfathomable that Ken Livingstone, the mayor of London, has replaced the classic red double-deckers with ugly American-style buses. It would be like Bloomberg replacing taxis with SUVs.

When I lived in London and couldn't afford the Tube, I'd just jump on one of these buses and free ride. Everyone understood that those who could afford to pay paid and those who couldn't didn't. It's so much kinder and gentler than the American system.

All together now: Globalization sucks.
