On Monday, the story of Andy Didorosi's Detroit Bus Co. getting hijacked by "one big wank-fest for Comcast" very nearly eclipsed the fact that he also launched a crowdfunding campaign for his Youth Transit Alliance the very same day.

The YTA, as you may recall from our interview with Didorosi last year, puts the Detroit Bus Co.'s vehicles to work during the week, taking kids from Southwest Detroit to and from after-school programs that they otherwise would not have access to. (On the weekends, they're known for embarking on Detroit tours).
