I just got back from seeing off my Chicago friend, Kristi, at the airport. I turned on CKNW and talk-show host, Bill Good, said that the final segment of his show was "open phones". So I called in and gave him (and his tens of thousands of listeners) a summary of Kristi's views of our part of the world:
- "Your public transportation system is excellent but does each bus driver have to treat their vehicle like a Ferrari sports car?"
- "Might you West Coasters be able to survive with one less Starbucks?!"
- "You obviously live in a beautiful place but the amount of graffiti and homelessness is clearly out of control."
