License Renewed (again)
From: Angel S. Rivera, Jr.
Just wanted everyone to know that I was granted four more years of freedom a fortnight ago. While most folks consider a trip to the license bureau only slightly less fun that an unanesthetized root canal, I walk in with a big smile, confident that all the i's have been dotted and the t's crossed. I simply stroll in, present my letter certifying that I have passed my most recent vision evaluation, pose for a photo only worthy of the FBI's 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list, plunk down my (now) US $14, and emerge on the other side ready to do battle on the roads once again.
It seems like only yesterday that I received my first license with it's restrictions, but as now almost 85,000 miles later, I at last have a place at the American motoring table. Yet it pains me that our woefully inadequate system of public transportation, with it's poor service and the stereotype that it only serves as a social welfare program, still gets the short end of the stick in the corridors of power. Only with an adequately funded system can people transform themselves from dependency to taxpaying citizens willing and able to participate fully in the economic and political processes.
As more pork-laden asphalt is generously slathered across America, we must look out for the welfare of those not as fortunate as ourselves, as well as defending the hard-fought victories we have so richly earned. I encourage all of you to contact your represntatives, senators, MPs, et al and demand that transportation alternatives for all be made a top priority.
I will be driving my car there, of course.
