    Ward eight has the highest unemployment in the country! Why does Marion Barry support a medallion system that will benefit investment companies? Harry Thomas,M. Brown and Barry have introduce a bill that will destroy black independent cab drivers. For example, a medallion in New York sells for 400,000-760,000. Recall those PIMPS!

    The current figures show that 90% of DC cabbies live outside of the city. Of the remaining, something like 5% of that 10% remain cabbies for a year or more. There are no black independent cab drivers to speak of--at least not any who are DC residents.

    In maintaining ridiculously low standards for DC cabbies, we're hurting DC residents to the sole benefit of MD and VA residents. Thank God our DC elected officials have finally started to represent DC residents.

    How will a medallion raise the standards for cabbies? Great investment tool for wall street!
