Transportation czar Robert Kiley, who saved New York City's subway system from terminal decay, is late for his first appointment of the day thanks to delays on the London Underground. He was stuck on a stalled subway train when he should have been at his desk. "Twelve minutes outside Victoria Station," Kiley muttered as he hustled into his high-rise office. A cynic might say this is good theater: a perfect entrance for the American who was brought in to overhaul London's subway system.

An accountant. A crime analyst. A city councilwoman and her husband, a political consultant. Orange County residents all, they met for the first time two years ago, drawn together by a common contempt for the impact they believed illegal immigrants were having here.

Is it possible that I am misreading Robert Kiley's methods of bringing attention to the Phyllis Badham-Gil Ferguson race for the 70th Assembly seat? I realize that campaigns are supposed to "peak" right before an election, but this means of seeking publicity for Badham strikes me as as little strange. On the other hand, why would Badham consultant Kiley want to publicize that he hadn't done his job well? Can it be good for his career as a campaign consultant to let all of Orange County know that he failed in his attempt to do what he was hired to do, i.e. raise money?

Ignoring demonstrators chanting "Shame! Shame! Shame!" the Metropolitan Transportation Authority voted Friday to raise its bus and subway fares 15 cents to $1.15. In addition to the first subway fare hike in four years, the MTA board approved increases averaging 15% for the commuter trains and express buses that serve the city's outer boroughs and suburbs. "No one likes a fare increase, but it does cost money to get things done," explained MTA Chairman Robert Kiley. "Service is getting better."
