Why I'm not a millionaire

Has MetroLink seen your website? I am shocked that your website is allowed to be online.
I had been searching for GO Transit's blog and came across your link.
Sure, it's for entertainment purposes. Tell me how much you're being paid since this is the biggest online focus group project I've ever seen!
It's the only thing that makes sense.
What I don't understand is why you don't link out to GO Transit.
That would be handy to me as I overheard today they have a blog but I can't find it.

re: blog

Hi there
I'm more than happy to address your email, Tyler.

1. Why would a company in California give two hoots about me?

2. This is Canada. I am allowed to put a website online about commuting on public transit. I'm not doing this from a cave with a coat hanger, so it's not some big secret.

3. GO Transit has a blog?!

4. The answer is ZERO dollars. Bwa ha ha!

5. I don't owe GO Transit a "link out". In fact, I don't owe them anything. As for owing me on the other hand ... still waiting on my paycheque.

6. You have GOOGLE. You knows how to use it.

- CJ

Link out to Go Transit? Can people get anymore lazier? And I am still amazed at the nay-sayers who can't stay away from cj's blog long enough! Seriously, you don't like the blog, don't freaking read it then!

I wish I had a quarter for every time someone said Metrolink when they meant Metrolinx. I'd have a good pocket full of quarters by now.

That said, I don't know why Metrolinx ever chose such an American, unoriginal, metro-sounding name like Metrolinx. They must have spent thousands on a brain-dead consultant and that was the best they could come up with.

If the consultant got thousands to change one letter of an existing name, that makes them smart. If they were dumb, they'd have spent far more time needlessly thinking about it.
