Things are tough all over

It could be worse. You could be living in New York.

That appears to be the message MBTA boss Dan Grabauskas is peddling to the Globe.

Smilin' Dan seems to be missing the point that I no longer take the IRT -- and neither do the millions of people who rely on the subway, buses and commuter rail trains that he is charged with running.

The Sox may hate the Yankees and the Patriots may not be feeling too kindly toward the Giants. But whether the MTA is in worse shape than the MBTA is not relevant to the issues at hand -- endless delays whether they involve buses ad subways or station construction.

Any overhaul of the MBTA included in the state's new transportation plan needs to include a provision to hire someone to run the T who actually has a clue.
