'Early this year I reviewed an intriguing book called "Unjust Deserts", by Gar Alperovitz and Lew Daly, that explores this very issue in depth..." (Ryan, above)

I have also written about this with a different jumping-off point, and more along the lines of gratitude...

The other thing that many seem to forget as they pat themselves on the back for getting to where they are entirely on their own is that they were also often simply in the right place at the right time-- but I haven't read Malcom Gladwell's Outliers yet.

So, to bring this back to public transportation-- so much of being at the right place at the right time has to do with where you live and what ammenities are immediately available to you, like efficient and affordable transit. So if you're 17 or 18 and your home neighbourhood doesn't have any, too bad for you.
