The San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit BART union and their employees have declared a work strike effective Friday October 18, 2013. Most of the hundreds of thousands of commuters in the San Francisco Bay Area who rely on BART everyday have been putting up with this BART management/union/employee drama and frankly we are all fed up. Regardless of who’s right or wrong, we the commuters have been used as pons in this endless vicious cycle. So what are we to do? Commemorate it! Commemorate it with this fitting tribute to Charles Earl Bowles aka “Black Bart” of yesteryear juxtaposed to this “Black BART – Strike 2013” of today happening in real time! Black Bart of yesteryear made a living robbing the transportation system of its time, the stagecoach, and putting fear in the eyes of every passenger. Now “Black BART – Strike 2013” is robbing the San Francisco Bay Area transportation system of our times, our BART trains, and once again putting fear in our livelihoods!
I’ve labored long and hard for bread,
For honor, and for riches,
But on my corns too long you’ve tread,
You fine-haired sons of bitches. -Black Bart 1877
