Friday nearly cuts the subway population in half. This is a huge benefit when with my subway over half the train cars don’t work right now. So say on a Thursday you get to share personal space with 173 of your best friends. But it’s Friday and on Memorial Day weekend so I suppose a whole gaggle of people want nothing to do with the office today. This was a nice little pick me up to get the day going where I had space enough to actually read my magazine.
In merry old England they just opened the Elizabeth Line which is one of the most modern (and expensive) train lines ever built. But then I read that even London’s subway is still only at about 2/3 to 3/4 of pre pandemic capacity. So it seems working from home is semi-permanent, or perhaps a lot of businesses no longer see advantages to being downtown. Is it in fact going to permanently reshape urban transportation?
Or, with inflation, war, supply shortages, alien sabotage, etc, the economy has still not fully recovered from pandemic? Maybe in say five years after inflation has cooled, Vlad is impaled on a spike by that Hero Comic Guy, and people can once again buy critical supplies again (like garden rakes) then the economy will blast off. And when it does downtown offices and their supporting subways will get cracking again. Who knows? At this point, it’s difficult to predict what’s going to happen to the planet in say three or four days.
But we at TAP are here to help! We can predict what will happen by next Tuesday! Honest. Let’s go!
2) Pizza will be made illegal
Nah, nope, we’re ah, we’re just not going to do this today. Sorry.
Enjoy your weekend, friends!
Boris will get drunk, comically push the train conductor out, and drive the train to Wales (somehow) where he will stop the train at an old Edward I hilltop fort castle (somehow) and then pass out drunk by falling through a wooden table.
