Get on the bus

Because the residents of Summerset don't want the Port Authority bus to venture beyond the gates of the manor, there are bad puns and nasty attitudes waiting to be visited upon them. For example: They're shocked (shocked!) to discover that they are actually living in the City of Pittsburgh. And: There was a time when America wanted to keep the poor and the black off the bus -- now it seems that only the poor and the black ought to ride it.

But I shouldn't indulge that impulse.

Instead, I say: Custard for all of Summerset! If the bus comes through after all, then there's plenty of room for you in Mt. Lebanon. Though truth be told, the bus comes through here, too, and some us even, like, ride it.
