Transit Love

The New York Times has a touching and hilarious story (written and illustrated) by Christophe Niemann, a father whose two sons (5 and 3) are obsessed with the New York Subway system:
When your child cries in public, it is usually an uncomfortable situation. Once, we needed to get home quickly from Chambers Street, and I told Gustav that we had to take whichever blue train came next. The A train pulled in, and Gustav (who had been hoping for the C) started throwing a fit. However, the other passengers in the car gave me warm smiles. I guess they hadn’t seen that many 3-year-olds sobbing, “Local…I want the local.”
