QUOTE:

The rides were rarely boring, and sometimes remarkably lively.

For example, one late-December evening in 2005, we happened to be aboard the Blue Line traversing back to Long Beach through South Los Angeles at the precise moment the funeral service for Crips CEO, community role model, and children’s author Tookie Williams concluded.

This was one week after Tookie was executed by lethal injection at San Quentin Prison. Governor Schwarzenegger rejected final pleas for clemency.

Following a four hour service, which included remarks by Reverend Jesse Jackson, Tony Robbins, Snoop Dogg, and a eulogy delivered by Minister Louis Farrakhan, to over 2,000 grieving attendees in and outside of Bethel AME Church, countless mourners packed into our train. The somber atmosphere – and the smell of booze – was so thick you could cut it with a knife.
