    I always rented a small apartment near where I worked. A few years ago I moved to Minnesota, where I now own a place, but back in the Bay Area, I never even considered those crazy commutes. I don't get why people did it.

    I knew people who took those commuter busses from deep in the central valley, getting up at 4am to do it!

      with the ACE (Altamont Commuter Express) trains coming from the Valley to the Valley, but it's still a bit of a trek. And I can see why bus drivers wouldn't want to make the drive to/from home every day when they already spend all day on the road. It's really tough on the family back home -- one of my favorite drivers ended up going through a divorce (he also told me after the divorce he wished I wasn't already married to a work colleague, which freaked me out just a bit...).

      There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- goddammit, you've got to be kind. -- Kurt Vonnegut
