Even with reasonably a good public transportation system, these people spend way too much time getting to and from places. This is not a high quality life, folks, even though you can learn to live with it.
This gave the Phactor cause to reflect on how fortunate he has been. Since I started making my living on college campuses in 1970, I have lived within walking distance of my work all but two years. And quite frankly I wouldn't trade this quality of life for anything. A great deal of my best thinking happens on my commute. Seriously could any good ideas, other than kill, Kill, KILL, occur to drivers on these express ways?
