In the story about the privatized Nassau Inter-County Express bus system's " 'Grim' service cuts" [News, Sept. 18], one Nassau Bus Transit Committee member said, "It's truly a testament to what happens when you privatize a public system."

Beware, privatization is the the same way the massive Nassau County sewage plants are being handled, by a company based in Europe. Our legislators and the Nassau Interim Finance Authority voted yes to this plan. Remember that, folks.
