  1. I really don't think any cab drivers read this blog so I don't see much point in even having it, most cab drivers including myself are computer illiterate.That's not to sell any of my wonderful comrades nor myself short I just don't think we're bothered.

  2. My recommendation is that they should stop selling medallions and got back to the egalitarian list. Honor the people on the waiting list.
