Bigger City

17 Sep

You know how your big cities are supposed to diminish people? You’re supposed to feel small in the face of it? That’s bullshit. You walk down the street in New York, you see all these sagas going on, you smell thirty smells in a block, and you snowball. These things are ADDED unto you. If you want people to feel small, you have to put them in the suburbs. They drive those cars that look like dump trucks to make up for it. They put on weight so they won’t blow away.
