He won't need the extra nickel any longer.

Because he'd bite it, break a tooth, swallow both, and die a horrible death.

I had a trip to New York some years ago where the subway system was such a pain. We'd buy passes, feed the passes into the machines, and the turnstile would turn a little bit, then lock, so we couldn't get through.
When we fed the pass in again, we'd get a message that it wouldn't work because it had just been used.

New York - my least favorite city in the world.

Maybe Bostonians face the same kind of hassles. If I were mayor, I'd try to find out why people aren't using the subways. Dirtiness, noise and stairways come to mind.

And what a wonderful Murder Ballad we'd have!

C'mon folks, time to get writin'!
