Would you like to sit?
June 21, 2013
When a very fragile old woman has to walk to the back of a streetcar in search of a seat, something in society has changed.
Here are my theories:
1) We’re tired of banksters and governments misappropriating our investments and taxes. If we have a seat we’re not giving it up for anyone. Period.
2) We refuse to stand while our elected officials argue over the transit crisis.
3) No one taught us to protect society’s vulnerable.
4) Manners were a casualty of feminism.
5) We’re asleep.
6) We’re tweeting.
7) Rob Ford
Give up your seat. You’ll feel better, not worse.
