I take the bus to work every day, spending up to four hours in transit. When most people hear this, they make a sound rather like "ugh." But I hereby declare that without my daily commute, the Th.M. and M.Div. would have been nearly impossible. Imagine having four hours, five days a week, dedicated to reading--and all this in a television world. So, thank you Metro, First Transit, and Norwalk Transit. I could not have done it without you.
