[LMB] OT: Cars, independence, and haut bubble

One of the nice things about living in Brooklyn is that I no longer need 
a car. I have not had one for 26 years. When I was working out on Long 
Island I did, but no longer. I have two buses and a subway stop on my 
corner and then there is MTA Access-A-Ride which will give me a taxi 
ride to anywhere in New York City for $2.75. A car requires continuous 
upkeep and a place to park it, which is difficult in my neighborhood. 
And then there is Lyft and Uber...
