The Onion features special transportation issue

Although this is not our normal fare, we thought our partners and readers would appreciate the articles in the issue of The Onion that came out last Wednesday. The satiric newspaper, born in our hometown of Madison, Wisconsin, is available as a print edition in a handful of cities around the country as well as on-line. Last week’s issue was The Onion Transit Issue.

Here are some highlights, which we hope will provide a few laughs.
