Fuck the parade. I hope it rains hard.

When I called Metra and asked about the reverse commuter people and that common sense would tell you that going out to the burbs at 7 am wouldn't cause an issue (or coming back into the city after 6 pm).  She just laughed and said she can't give her own opinion.

I work six floors above the RTA offices. Want me to go downstairs and yell at them?
Just throw some things at them, Adam! ;)

Bitter?

Bitter about what?

No, seriously . . . What has changed in your life? Our beloved mayor decided not to close schools? To spend more money on education, public trasport, etc., then on prisons? All the potholes in Chicago suddenly paved themselves over? Obama banned that pipeline? At least one banker was put on trial? Guantanamo is closed? WHAT?!!

If only half of the energy spent on stupid shit like that were put on something useful . . .

Panem et circenses indeed.

Bread and circuses.  

Try not to be too positive about the state of affairs though.
