Advertising spree!!!
There are so many ads in the subway that they can drive you crazy! Every bit of space is used, nothing is neglected! The most recent space to advertise is the actual metro access card!!! You might ask why this spree bothers me...Well, it’s not the ads! I always loved advertisements, the good ones, at least…The problem is this: if they get that much money from advertising, if they even use the metro cards, why are they about to increase the price of the above mentioned cards?

Other than that, what struck me last night was an idiot's comment before a boxing “fight of the century” featuring Mike Tyson! All the reporter could say about Tyson before the fight was that he spent his zillions of dollars on parties, jewelry and women…His boxing history was of course irrelevant…

    The fact that the tickets are expensive doesn't always have to do with the actual cost. The price has to be accorded with the prices from the European Union countries and believe me we're not even close to those prices! A person from France cannot buy a subway ticket here with 50 eurocents and with 1,2 euro in Paris. It's just not fair if we want to be part of the same "big country"!

    I'm sorry, George, but th e French to have a lot more substantial wages than we do! You cannot really expect Romanians to have no problem paying as much as other people gainint 10 times more money pay for a ticket!
