Is Homer Simpson smarter than the MTA?

Stop calling it an unlimited subway card if there is a 90 ride cap on it.
Transit officials said they wanted to hear from riders before making a final decision, and on Tuesday, Jay H. Walder, the authority’s chairman, told reporters that he had not heard much excitement for the concept of an unlimited card with a cap, at least from speakers at the public hearings on the fare increases.

I’m reminded of a memorable exchange

Lionel Hutz: Now, Mrs. Simpson, tell the court in your own words what happened after you and your husband were ejected out of the restaurant.
Marge: Well, we pretty much went straight home.
Lionel Hutz: Mrs. Simpson, remember that you are under oath.
Marge: We drove around until three in the morning looking for another open all-you-can-eat seafood restaurant.
Lionel Hutz: And when you couldn’t find one?
Marge: [crying] We… went… fishing.
Lionel Hutz: Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, do these sound like the actions of a man whose had ALL he could eat?
