Subway Etiquette

Item #1: To the blonde woman with the iPod nano who just had to get into the last car of the #1 subway train this morning at 34th street, when you see a woman of child bearing age standing inside the "closing doors" please refrain from hurling your body at full speed towards this person with the hope that you might be able to make yourself fit despite the bulging pool of humanity which is already shoved inside the car, as alas, said woman may actually be with child and she really doesn't need to get your hand/elbow/sherpa pack in her kidneys. Thank you.

Item #2: To the kind folks at the Metropolitan Transportation Authority-- why is it that now the bulk of the public service announcement signs on the subway dealing with preventing terrorism, etc. are solely in Spanish, yet the sign which indicates that carrying a loaded weapon on the subway will get you a minimum of 3 1/2 years in jail is only in English?
