Today is my favorite kind of weather: it's sunny and frosty. I love frosty air and would gladly walk to work. It's just 3,5 miles, which is not a long distance to walk at all in this nice weather. I can't do that, though, because there are no sidewalks here for people to travel on foot. This car-obsessed lifestyle is horribly inconvenient, unhealthy, and expensive. I truly pity the teenagers of this area. They can't go anywhere unless their parents drive them around. And then everybody is shocked that the rates of obesity are growing and people become less healthy every year.
It's so sad that a simple pleasure of walking to work on a beautiful frosty day has been stolen from us by nasty car manufacturers who want to squeeze us into their stinky heaps of metal by any means necessary.
