is the art of writing an application gone these days? this is like the third one ive seen.
I'm not sure if they're applications or homework assignments from classes they're taking. Either way, as my grandfather used to say, "A stupid question will always get a "stupider" answer." :-)

This young man, Gus waits at the train station in West Medford, Massachusetts (Lowell Train Line) train every single morning just to hear the whistle and great the Engineer Sue and every morning he is as happy as he was the day before and every morning Sue chats with him while the passengers in West Medford get on the train and as we depart the station Gus' excitement grows as he anticipates Sue waving to him as she blows the train whistle for him. To Gus' bus driver - I wish I could capture your face in the video as well - you are always happy doing this for Gus and really for all of us passengers on the Lowell train. Thank you for your patience and for taking the time out of your day each morning for making out mornings brighter. We need to celebrate people like this bus driver and Sue the engineer and we all certainly could learn a lot from Gus - to enjoy the small things in life and realize that our smiles and happiness and exuberant waves actually effect those around us. We would like to say thank you to Gus, the bus driver and Sue the engineer for starting our days off right - Jannelle, Jennifer, Jill and Rachel and the rest if the passengers on the 8:20 train from Lowell.
