the personal No-Fly Zone
Lenny Bruce is not afraid / it is not the end of the world as we know it
A letter from a correspondent:
So I have, on a few occasions, expressed to my friends that I no longer fly. I was hoping to explain this publicly. There are a few reasons that I don’t fly.
COVID. I’m not worried about catching COVID, I’m worried that I will fly somewhere and they won’t let me fly back.
Climate change. There are a lot of big things people are doing to combat climate change. This … is not one of them. But it is a small thing, and if small things are all I can do, then I will do small things.
Cash. No, not money, Johnny Cash. I have already been to a lot of places, and don’t really see much benefit to going elsewhere.
the Newslettr apologizes for cutting the letter off early. There were some additional reasons provided, but they were quite disturbing … and more suited to a psychiatrist’s office than a public forum.
A few months ago, the Newslettr looked at improving the passenger rail service in the United States, and determined that was very unlikely to happen:
This leaves two options for long-distance transport: the bus, and the passenger vehicle. However, everyone knows about passenger vehicles, and nobody cares about long-distance bus routes in America.
Which apparently makes this a short newslettr. Happy Tuesday.
