McCoy put his arm over Bowers shoulder, and then they held hands. Bowers leaned to his partner of seven years and murmured the words to the Lesley Gore classic Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows. They chatted, fingers interlocked.
If youre going to do that, youre going to the back of the bus, the bus driver abruptly said, turning a furious face to them. After a surprised Huh?, the couple says the driver told them to move to the back of the bus immediately.
In a statement released this week, Standard Parking apologized to the couple for any disrespectful treatment they received in New Mexico. The driver was suspended and the entire transportation staff will retake sensitivity training, said Standard Parking Executive Vice President Michael Wolf.
Bowers and McCoy say that apology was too little, too late.
Some fluffy thing like sensitivity training, thats really quite ambiguous, McCoy said. I want to have a better sense of assurance that this is going to be lasting corporate change that will not drift away and fade as this news story fades.

“the driver told them to move to the back of the bus immediately”
How about the side of the road?
If these guys want to engage in their perversion, have at it. But why should they demand the rest of us not treat it as perversion and a blot on public morals?
They’re cousins! Identical cousins! They look alike, they talk alike, sometimes they even think alike! What a crazy pair!
Stop advertising for them.
The only thing that could make that more gay would be a Judy Garland fan club Tee-shirt on one and a 'family' membership card to the Liberace museum in Las Vegas.
The driver must be severely punished, He did not ask for AIDS test results, thereby endangering the health of other passengers. He was not wearing rubber gloves and a face mask, as required by EMTs handling known homosexuals.
I demand this careless insensitive fellow be put on all-expense paid furlough in Hawaii for six months with his entire family, while the "authorities" investigate, and then be returned to his post with a raise.
I suspect there was a lot more going on than fingers interlaced and chatting. I believe this was specifically designed to get a reaction so they could get their 15 minutes of fame and score one for the homosexual mafia. These guys probably got more and more “affectionate” until they got a reaction from the driver.
I’m surprised the bus driver didn’t vomit. This catering to the militant mentally ill can only go so far.
Idiots just can’t sit on a bus.
Like do they think that a normal male and female would have been told to continue to act obnoxious like that?
They were likely being over the top with a bus full of people that were visibility annoyed.
Which one these pervs is the pitcher?
The bus driver told them to move to the back of the bus....
where they could have a little privacy.
are these the 2 Irish bone smugglers...
...Patrick Fitzgerald and Gerald Fitzpatrick????
I call them Patty and Cathy.

Scots I believe... Ben Doone and Phil McAvity.
I remember that show. the guy who played the father played a minor annoying (to Kirk) minor bureaucrat in Star Trek the original series ....the one with the tribbles....
William Schallert. (That may be spelled incorrectly.) He had a great movie and tv career.

Going to the back of the bus is an allusion to the segregation days in the South. This is being played well by these two.
Good for this bus driver. New Mexico has it’s share of new age hippie types and democrats. But it also has a solid helping of old west traditional types.
Im glad someone had the balls to tell them to knock it off. They were supposedly doing this in front of kids.
Groveling, apologizing, suspending, sensitivity training. Standard procedure for the unforgiveable sin of violating political correctness.
Too bad there’s not as much outrage over assaults, beating up, theft, rape and murder.
I’d say this to any couple making out in the bus — other people getting on and off the bus don’t want to see your inappropriate physical behavior.
