I read an article recently about the new revamping of the MTA subway 
system.  It seems that the new "conductorless" trains will be using 
radio frequence to communicate with base stations.  Seems kinda scarry 
to me, I just don't trust much that goes over the radio waves especially 
if the data being transmitted is actually controlling the train.  Anyone 
else read this story, think it was in the voice three or four months ago...
