George Will has obviously never heard of the New York City Metropolitan Transit Authority.
Yea, those guys really kill me and are always good for a laugh (but only because I live in Texas and don't have to deal with them regularly). That post especially cracks me up because I went out with a friend who's in town from NYC last night and that's one of the things we were talking about!
I've seen that 85% number in a textbook for a policital science or communications class back in the day, so I know it exists, but it doesn't mean anything. It's also outdated now, as one of the links that I always have to throw up shows.
