Here are some readers’ recent thoughts on the issues:

Jim Menders:

I ride the Coaster every day from Old Town Transit Station to Poinsettia Station. It’s a 45-minute ride, and there are days when I to step off the train and need to pee. Stepping off at the relatively new Poinsettia station in North County, riders find well maintained restrooms. However, stepping off at Old Town, train riders will find that the station doesn’t exactly have public restrooms. What were once public restrooms are now grudgingly made accessible by a small convenience store. The restrooms’ entries are at the far end of the store, and require a token to access, available for a fee at the cash register. Can you imagine an airport without a public restroom? It’s an outrage and a disgrace.

James Everett:

Here’s a great idea. I’m so tired of these politics and the government telling us lies and all. Let’s do this as a country, why don’t we give them the same exact thing we have: part-time jobs with no medical or dental. Let’s see them survive the way we are. I’ll bet you someone up there will step up and change things quickly.

Tax the rich, I’m so sure they can afford it.
