Last week I wrote about poor behavior in our common spaces, linking to a particularly nasty experience one reader had on transit.
Here’s the flip side. Over at the Daily Score Alan Durning is writing about rediscovering positive interactions (and some negative ones) in the commons, after getting out of his “car-coon”.
I can vouch for that. Walking in the central city regularly provides opportunities for chance encounters with friends and acquaintances, interactions that would never happen if I were in a car. I know my life is the richer for it.
