Kenneth Vogel, author of Big Money, a recent book on the rise of super PACs, was critical of of Mayday's efforts, saying, "While voters do express high levels of disgust about the state of campaign finance and the level of corruption in Washington, they tend to actually cast votes more on bread-and-butter economic issues." Still, Lessig is hopeful for the future: "We moved voters on the basis of that message. Not enough. Not cheaply enough. But they moved."

It is based on tetris, but it is actually pretty good history illustration.

I bought Anker batteries for my (now Ancient) Thinkpad T42p and Macbook Pro 4,1. Prior to the purchases, I bought some cheep ones for the thinkpad and dropped (a lot of) money on the OEM replacement for the macbook and the Anker battery is actually better than Apple's.

No the S2 gallery app has a setting to detect faces and let you tag them (similar to face tagging like on facebook). In the gallery settings you can switch it off..
Lets imagine there was actually huge amount of them - 90% of passengers. Just to make very obvious to see.
That means that company has 90% less revenue to operate with and operate costs.
They could cancel enough lines to stay in positive numbers. Now the cost for everyone is that service is way worse.
They could raise up fare. Paying 10 times the fare is quire a cost raise for paying people.
Or they could lobby local government for tax subsidies. That would come in greater taxes or tax money missing elsewhere. Raised costs for everyone, even people not using public transport.
Of course, company could just shut down. Id say that is quite a cost.
Once fixed cost line has enough passengers to cover its costs, it does not mean that it has to be pure profit.
Usually, public transport company mandate is to provide transport first. Any extra gains would to to establishing new lines (to provide better connections, new connections or to just shift loads) or increasing amount of vehicles on line for less overcrowding.
Each freeloader may add little cost to operating line he is riding on, but fare he pays could also go to improving service for others.
This is why public transport can be pricey - you pay for late night buses, buses to less populated neighborhoods, more buses during rush hour...
