Letter: What real city shuts its subway for eight months?

So, Ken Garcia wants to know why San Francisco shouldn't host the
Olympic Games. Have him walk to Market Street some weekday night after
10 and take a ride on the Muni underground. My point is: it's shut
down "for improvements." And it's been this way since January.
Can you imagine a city like New York, London or Moscow shutting down
subway service for eight months? San Francisco can't provide its
citizens with decent, efficient transportation; how can Garcia expect
San Francisco to provide it when the rest of the world comes to visit?
