Telegraph – Home front. By Philip Johnston: There’s no going back for our buses

About Maggie privatizing the buses outside of London in the 80s. I only mention it because legend has it (specifically: my dad’s ranting has it) that there was a bus system at home (Santa Clara Valley) that was run by Greyhound, and ran at a profit. Now, of course, it’s all the Valley Transit Authority, I guess (I’ve taken one bus in my life at home)) that shuttles around Hispanic cleaning ladies and the odd teenager for the amount of money that could be used to buy each of them a Benz.
