It was like in Israel, the drivers and passengers were all buddies and friendly. On the way to Queens, I wasn't sitting close enough to hear the conversation, but on the way back I was right there. OK, on the bus there were barely half a dozen of us, but everyone was talking.
First there was a conversation about:
"Did you see the picture on the cover of the newspaper? Take a look!"
"A black couple with a blond blue eyed kid!"
"Is it theirs?"
"Maybe he's albino."
"Did they do DNA testing?"
Then the conversation switched to Obama. I could see that the driver was Black, but wasn't sure about the others. I was certain that they must be loyal Obama fans.
"Do you think he'll get a second term?"
Interesting..."No way. He has made too many mistakes, and too many impossible to keep promises." And that was the driver.
