    What do we think about these things?

    Is it taking it too far? Is it OK to compare a crowded subway to the trains that transported millions of people to their death? Not living in New York, but living in another big city, I understand the uncomfortable situations of a crowded train, but personally, I think these ads, while the intention is probably educational, may be seen as offensive.

    How do you as the writer of this article on this Jewish website, feel about it? I would be interested in reading your views.
