FRIDAY 5 FOR JULY 29: PUBLIC OPTIONS
When did you last use a public restroom?
does the one at a school count? that would be earlier this week.
When did you last ride public transportation?
does the monorail at the shopping mall count? that would be earlier this year.
How far away from your home is the nearest public housing?
there were a few of them near where i grew up. in fact, i wonder if where i grew up is considered public housing? maybe. but i know there was one down the road, one across the street, and another one diagonally from us. right now, i’m not sure if there are any around where i live. oh, i looked it up, and there’s one quite a ways down the road from me. looking on the map, there’s nothing there, so i think it’s the new subdivision that is being built.
Which of your public utilities is the least reliable?
i’m not sure. we seem to be getting a lot of backed up pipes nowadays. i guess our place is getting old.
What did you last view on public television or listen to on public radio?
there were radio stations being played in the stores i just went to. they were playing christmas music, of course.
