Transit strikes are fun! (I've seen too many Vietnam war movies...)

I normally walk into Linux Caffe in the morning. It's a pleasant one hour walk down through the little neighbourhoods. This morning, however, as I headed out there were helicopters and planes swarming the place. I kept getting flashes of "distopianism" and feeling the urge to scurry from doorway to doorway to avoid the all-seeing eyes that would crush us underfoot.

I wish I had a child with me, it would have been fun to run from cover to cover, pretending to be resistance fighters on our way to a clandestine meeting to overthrow the government. Being old and staid, however, I just walked in and enjoyed the moment.
