Ummm it's not that hard

From a story today about a bill requiring Metra to take credit cards in the Beacon
John Doe dreads the ticketing lines at the Route 59 Metra station in Aurora. But no matter how savvy this commuter has become through years of riding from Aurora to Chicago, he always gets stuck somehow.

Having to pay in cash or check for his rides on the Metra has delayed this IT consultant more than enough times on his way to work. "It's painful to carry a checkbook around. It doesn't fit anywhere," Doe said.

Well where do I start on this (the rest of the story has people complaining). First, you can take a check out of your checkbook, fill it out and take it to the station with you. It's not rocket science. You can go to this place called a bank and get cash and take the cash with you to the station as well. You can also get tickets by mail...

Glad I was able to help.
