(As CTA Tattler takes a brief summer's respite, we'll publish "Tattler Tales" from the very early days of CTA Tattler. I started chronicling all things seen and heard on the CTA in June 2004. Here I introduce Rule No. 1 on the CTA.)
We're headed south on the Red Line at about 10:30 a.m.
A young black man got on the train at Loyola. He had a tracheotomy port in his neck. He was barefoot. Wearing a hospital gown. With no underwear. And you know, those hospital gowns don’t cover the back very well. He was very jittery.
As usual, no one else on the car seemed to notice.
Rule No. 1 on the CTA: Avoid eye contact at all cost.
