Weighing in on best and worst CTA performers
Christine emailed me last week with an idea for some CTA Tattler reader participation. And a good idea it is.
She suggested we all write in about our favorite -- or least favorite -- CTA performers. Whether they be singers, guitarists, or Bible thompers, each is different and adds a certain flavor to our commuting experience.
For some reason, I don't usually see too many performers on my daily commute. But recently I started taking a class at Roosevelt University, and hopped a Michigan Avenue bus. At a bus stop on a drizzly afternoon, I spied a guy who was rappin' at the shelter. AT and ON the shelter, that is.
This nattily dressed fellow was standing on the small bench in the shelter at Michigan and Randolph, rapping away, while simultaneously rapping a beat on the shelter window with some small metal object.
Even though it was raining, fellow passengers gave him wide berth, and would rather stand in the drizzle than be subjected to his double rapping inside the shelter.
How about the rest of you? Weigh in below.
