That’s the one thing about this place that has changed in 40 years — the city now shills gambling to you why’ll you wait for your government-run train to arrive. I am now writing this inside of the city’s train painted to look like beer.
In Space, there is only one Mc Donald’s but they close at 10. You can go ice skating in Space even in the summer time. In that room, there is one discordant spectacle amidst 1971′s decaying remains: a bright, big, city-owned plasma screen television that for 18 hours of every day advertises a casino.
But that room, where a bored, cold, and tired CTA employee lazily eyes you from their glass cage; where an expanse of urine-stained, diesel-scented concrete hisses under broken flourescent lights; where the walls are a sleepless, soiled white.
The platform itself is dismal, but its a restful dismal, and when you’re surrounded by 6 lines of cars and 2 train lines, it at least feels like getting away with dancing on a highway median.
As commander in chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense. Speaker, Members of the Senate, and of the House of Representatives: Yesterday, December 7th, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in the American island of Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to our Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message.Early in the afternoon of December 7, 1941, President Franklin D.Roosevelt and his chief foreign policy aide, Harry Hopkins, were interrupted by a telephone call from Secretary of War Henry Stimson and told that the Japanese had attacked Pearl Harbor.
