Reminds me of a train ride, not the worst tho. Riding on a rush hour #4, north bound, with people squashed together on a bumpy express train, I'm holding on to the center pole and opposite me is this tall, big, very mean looking black man in whose eyes you can see how much he hates me and all the other white people he's ever seen. (I'm only trying to describe the scene, I have no idea what he's thinking). Next stop a 8 1/2 month pregnant woman gets on who grabs the pole between us (obviously no one would give her a seat). I look at the other guy who looks directly at me and we instinctively put our arms around the woman and clasp hands to protect her from the crush of the crowd. She gets off, we never say a word. I love the NY subway.
