    it best in “Cool Hand Luke”, unfortunately. The peploe who can make life bearable for those in need have no incentive to do so because they’re comfortable, and being rewarded generously for being comfortable instead of listening to those in pain. For every Gandhi or MLK or Mother Teresa there are ten thousand assholes with an “I/Me/Mine” attitude running the show, and nothing and no one makes them see the light. I’ve come to the conclusion that taking a positive step whenever possible is better than refusing to move unless it’s for all the marbles. Economic changes happen incrementally, like evolution or climate change, and we have to whittle away at the edges whenever possible, because the big boys won’t let things move faster than a glacial pace, regardless. But to shrug it all off “as the progress of man” (quoting John Prine) is fatalistic and kills the soul.

    I’m not sure you really need a survey to find out if there is a parking shortage. Truckstops charging $10 a pop for the last 12 parking spots (preferred parking) should tell you all you need to know.

What do you have to say about this?
