you probably do not need another good reason not to move to staten island . . . but, the mta just approved a toll hike from $11.00 to $13.00 on the verrazano bridge. can you imagine paying $13.00 to be on staten island? i would rather eat worms. although it is a very beautiful bridge. maybe $13.00 is the price of beauty if you’re a bridge. here’s a nice picture i found on the internet:

this guy is probably happy to pay $13.00 to cross the bridge. i can’t imagine under what circumstance someone would have the thought that they would like to have the verrazano bridge tattooed onto their back. i bet he lives on staten island.
the post announced the toll hike today and i scrolled down to the comment section – which i always avoid because they can be pretty rancid. . . but i was curious about people’s reaction to the toll hikes. i found this comment which made it completely worth scanning through the usual trash people spew in that section:
“And, it’ll only go higher again next year.
Will the last sane person leaving NY please turn off the lights.”
“Grant that I may become beautiful in my soul within, and that all my external possessions may be in harmony with my inner self. May I consider the wise to be rich, and may I have such riches as only a person of self-restraint can bear or endure.”
