If Philadelphians are not fundamentally more rude than the average American, why are the people who get on at Philly the ONLY people who violate the Acela quiet cars rules????
ADDENDUM: It may be that they are dumber. Apparently the yakkers, upon being busted by the Quiet Car police, say they didn’t realize it was the quiet car despite HUGE signs all along the row. Dumber or ruder? You decide.
