Why tell the truth when a lie is more dramatic?

Maybe I have this backward but if the current idea is to keep people from congregating the announcement below doesn’t make sense:

The streetcars may be the safest public places in town.

I suspect that the real reason for doing this is to save money, an effort that I support.

Honesty seems to be in short supply from the city.

We deserve better

    If the trolleys stayed running they’d be a good place to socially isolate since no one rides them

    Brutus you are surely right…the streetcars cost about 1.5 to 2 million bucks a year to operate and maintain, and the income from fares is about 5% of that! But the City “leaders” cannot acknowledge that they made a mistake when they supported this project, so they have to say it’s for our safety.

    Fewer people on streetcars means more people on the buses. The petri dishes on wheels just got more crowded.
