the brewhaha on twitter yesterday, i mentioned one thing i do not miss riding the bus is the radio, its just so negative. so this morning i need to drive in and i have 96 on and the two negative morning guys are talking about Giants people in town talking about how amazing downtown is and all the stuff thats going on. pretty cool right?
wrong, the guys on the radio ask, "are we missing something? nothing is happening downtown, as a matter of fact, Havana Martini and Blue Wisp are closing."
never mind the fact Havana isn't really closing so much as changing. and Blue Wisp? it may move to Clifton who knows. the point being i said no one goes to Blue Wisp anyhow and a couple people jumped in talking about how its nice to relax, no one knows you or talks to you, its not a bar to be seen blah, blah, blah.
BULL i say, if I wanted to sit in the dark by myself i could stay at home. When i go out i want to talk to deipnosophists over real drinks and food.
but back to the radio, no wonder people with long commutes have the worse attitudes, if i had to listen to those guys everyday i'd be super negative on the city too. don't forget, they have a vested interest in people living out in the exburbs, the farther your drive the longer you have to listen to the radio.
and their anti streetcar bias? yeah, i doubt they're gonna have a radio in the streetcar.
