First Things First...
Jean Ryan (pictured lower right, her back to our view while sitting in her wheelchair) is shown behind a podium, speaking to the some of the members of the Taxi and Limousine Commission, who are seated behind their tables (pictured left, in background of photo).

On the wall of the room are the letters "TLC" with an indentified logo to the left of the "T". Also at the wall, two flags are seen standing to the right of the letters "TLC". Taped on the back of Jean Ryan's back is a paper sign reading "Mayor Bloomberg First Things First - Taxis for ALL".

The TLC plans (as of May 4, 2005) to upgrade the city's taxicabs with satellite global positioning systems. Ryan asked at the hearing "What good is an information screen or credit card machine or other high-tech feature, if we can't even get into the cab in the first place?"
