Miami is a hick-town with electric lights, as anyone coming from any of any of the truly major, truly American cities can tell you. If not that, then it is might be called a medium sized, banana republic city, but never a great, or even viable city in an American sense. If nothing else, Miami missed its opportunity to be... better, through its lack of real culture (not ethnic culture, that we have lots of...) and the apparent inability for is people to really grasp the idea of what it means to be a U.S. resident or citizen. I am appalled at the number of people I have heard on the street and on the train reviling the nationi that feeds them. But even greater than that, its the people who run it and don't run it more honestly. In Miami the powers that be seem to think that public transportation is a money making, for profit opereation, as opposed to a service to its residents and visitors. Thumbs down all the way Miami, you will never make the finals this way!!!
