least you're out in the mix. People are striving to find enjoyable
moments in their lives regardless of how difficult our present bad
habits make it. It's really a sing that waht we strive for are
conditions the majority seeks as well, but doesn't know how to find,
simply because they see cars as a "natural" part of the urban
landscape--till they go somewhere else.
