BART is likely going to raise fares by 10 percent across the board and cut service to cope with its growing budget deficit, according to the Chron. But is the agency talking about salary cuts for its highly paid workforce? Of course not. That just isn't done. It's always better to stick it to the public.

Meanwhile, the Chron also reports that a protester threw red paint on BART GM Dorothy Dugger at yesterday's agency meeting. The Chron even has a video of the incident. Dugger and the BART board have come under intense criticism for the agency's mishandling of the Oscar Grant shooting. Now BART is talking about searching members of the public before meetings.
