The unaccented Voice Of The L reminds us repeatedly that we WILL be arrested for unauthorized soliciting. But that isn't always true: Several bums move furtively through the cars, asking for money. Their quest for chump change appears largely unsuccessful. One stooped man waddles through with a sign that claims he's deaf and needs cash. While he's about seven feet away with his back turned, two passengers loudly reach the conclusion that he can hear just fine. Further south, another guy walks through booming "M&Ms, two for a dollar, help the homeless, M&Ms…" Like his colleague, he gets no takers.
