SEPTA driver is a hero in Poland
Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | 11/22/2012 | Daniel Rubin

---snip--- in the fall of 1985, he and a friend in the Solidarity movement bought a pig from a farmer, tied a red ribbon - symbolizing communism - to its tail, and painted on its flanks the words in Polish for "I'm voting." Before sending it squealing through Gdansk's old city, his friend greased the pig. "People laughed," Sekowski says. The pig protesters, whoever they were, became folk heroes. Then Sekowski got cocky. Before setting out to repeat the act in nearby Gdynia, he notified the newspapers. The secret police stopped the Fiat sedan on the way to the city, with the pig, in the trunk, ready to go.

My dad was a bus driver, and a hero. In the south during Jim Crow days.

What?!!! There’s actually a white SEPTA driver in Philadelphia! I am truly shocked, given that the city had to find alternate means of transport for commuters during the MILLION MORON MARCH some years ago.
