Wow, just when we need it, it's State Fair time. I mean, it's still two weeks away, but we can be thinking about it. Or would you rather think about the stock market?

So the TTA's Triangle Transit's running buses to the Fair on Saturdays and Sundays from RTP and Chapel Hill. $5, $2.50 seniors, kids free. You can't beat that. Details from the don't call it TTA any more/Triangle Transit press office are below the fold.
