Daniel Steinberg @ 10:53am-- Thank you for this tip. I googled for news articles, which led me to an article about artists painting on the current Metrocards. Fascinating:

Here's the actual news article:

wouldn't want to be identified by name on this, but one story that the media has missed, and perhaps it is too micro for the media to care, but nation's restaurant news - once the leading b2b publication for the restaurant industry and the leading source of news in that business - has been acquired by its smaller, but arch-rival, penton communications. to make the deal sweeter, nation's restaurant news laid-off nearly all of its senior editorial staff, some who had worked there for 20 years or more, about 16 people nationwide.

MTA will eliminate Metrocards by 2015. Station Agents were already laid-off last year. This means more lay offs coming.
