London, the vicitm if this weeks terrorist attacks, is soldiering on. I doubt that anything that wasn’t damaged was closed by their public transportation systems. Bless them for classic stoic resistance.
But meanwhile, here in the Philadelphia area, DARPA PANICS AND CLOSES A PEDESTRIAN WALKWAY/BIKEWAY across the Delaware river.
This walkway is the only way for people to cross the Delware river without using a car or a train. I now must take my bike on the train into the busy stations as if it were fucking winter.
I complained, of course. But it is useless. Nobody at DARPA cares. They are a bunch of pork fed fatties who have bloated themselves by looting the various fundmakers, such as the toll system. They’ve managed to screw other things up so badly (such as EZPass) so badly that nobody wants to use it.
They use any excuse to close the walkway. “I thought I saw a snowflake” would be one excuse.
Never mind that they’ve had a police officer on the walkway since 2001. Although his job description might be considered “On duty sleeper” or “Pathway blocker”.
