    Most of the cab drivers in this city are foreigners, and its amazing that these immigrants can march on City Hall, and yet they can't see that this mayor is trying to push them out of the game. But, they worrying about their fellow cabbies getting killed. Well, we been getting KILLED since they freed us, and we ain't marched yet. Oh, the poverty pimps put on a circus, but the actual people haven't marched yet. You know why? Because ain't nobody listening!!!
