What those two men did on that BX6 bus was completely uncalled for. And now, according to the tape, one of the two men spoke to the bus operator who apparently agreed to what those two men were about to do. Weather everybody realized it or not, everybody on that BX6 bus were put in extreme danger had the bus gotten into a accident. Those things happen in the subway all the time. But, there is a very big difference between a bus and a subway car. For example, many, many years ago on the A train to Roackaway Beach, a person would whip out the accordian or sweege box and start playing Irish jigs and reels and even the humming of the train motors back then would somehow chime in to the music. If there was ever a time for the bus operator to pull over and call the police, it was when those two men got up and started doing kelenstenits on the bus to music. Moreover, it is not because I dislike music of any kind, but I do believe in SAFETY/
