At one metropolitan Boston paper, the Red Sox' beat writer (much older than
Dan or I) is often driven to and from the ballpark by his mother. I
understand a medical condition preventing the writer from driving causes
(very legitimate) is the reason for such, however.

Personally, I always took public transit. I used to frequently commute
to/from the North Shore on the express bus running out of Haymarket. Such
was life having parents who did not/could not drive.
