Thank you for Tuesday's editorial "Baltimore gets schooled on transit," (Sept. 5), particularly the mention of the need for "new furnishings" and "even decent benches."

A suggestion for you to press Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank and his company: Have Under Armour gift the city with cleverly designed bus shelters, easily installed and assembled, a four-sided shelter with easily removable clear panels, bench equipped, bearing the Under Armour logo. Think of the 27,000 grateful school kids and all the grateful daily commuters.

Those of us who drive by the stops, in our cars, in increment weather, should make a pledge, too. Mine: After over 60 years of my "All Stars," I'll start walking with new Under Armours.

David Kinne, Baltimore
