MTA Sees Dark Future in Fortune Cookies

In honor of Halloween, the Straphangers Campaign brought custom-made fortune cookies to the MTA's monthly meeting today. The messages warned that cutting service would give board members heartburn and raising fares will harm their love lives. But most clever was this: "Down at the bottom of the bag of cookies given to a Times reporter was one spoofing a line that most subway riders will recognize: 'There’s a fortune cookie right behind this one.' No surprise: It was the last cookie in the bag." [City Room/NYT]
