Spencer Ackerman Sticks Up For The Short Bus

The Guardian‘s U.S. national security editor Spencer Ackerman is nothing if not sympathetic towards the short bus. This morning he went after a guy honking his horn (because this is extremely rare in Brooklyn).

If you ever need anyone to fight off people treating short buses in any way less than they deserve, Ackerman’s your guy.


One follower, however, SimplyLeftBehind, appears to have Ackerman beat in the outrage department. He writes, “@attackerman I once helped EMTs get an octogenarian into an ambulance over foot high snow drifts at 5 AM, and some asshole was honking.”

A foot of snow and an octogenarian beats the short bus every time.
