On my way home, stopped at a light in North Adams, I spotted BRTA (Berkshire Regional Transit Authority) Bus 31 stopped, facing me in the oncoming lane. Its digital display was flashing its route: WalMart-Hospital, WalMart-Hospital...with the return route, presumably, Hospital-WalMart, Hospital-WalMart.
Irony becomes reality: a literal mass-transit loop between mass-consumerism and mass-sickness. If it only stopped at MacDonalds!
A sad and poignant observation. Millions of years of evolution have led to this!
