You would soon learn if you lived here. :)


Could you imagine living without a car?

In the United States? You've got to be joking.
For most people that is just not possible.
I'm not physically able to walk all the way into town and then drag groceries home on my back.

Of course, if I were REALLY rich, I could buy a home right uptown near a grocery store -- if there were any for sale (which there are usually not) -- and then I wouldn't need a car until I needed to go to the doctor or somewhere other than the grocery store.

Do you have any idea how BIG the United States is?
Oy. Living without a car is only possible for a few people here.
Not for the majority.
