    We dont have a copy of how many commuters were interviewed, what the questions were on the survey, what the meta-analysis of the surrvey showed, etc.  An editorial isn't the best place to publish this, but he coud have at least left a link to a blog page that had his analysis.    Speaking Spanish doesnt alarm me as someone who rides the T.  Being aggressive, yelling, or acting intoxicating in a public place does alarm me and let me tell you, I have been in some scarey situations on the T from folks like that.... and they were white and spoke English. And the result was I felt we need to do more to fund mental health or social services to those in distress.
