Anyhoo, it all appears on the next page...
Okay, so, the city is now actually planning on closing the Fresh Kills Landfill. After decades of promises and plans, Staten Island will no longer be refuse-r friendly. Of course, the question is "Then what?" Sure, there's no more garbage coming in, but what about the borough-busting mounds of it we have now?
The most amazing thing has happened. Somewhere along the line, people in Manhattan decided that the Staten Island Ferry is as important as the Brooklyn Bridge, the Manhattan Bridge and the Queensboro Bridge. Yes, like our brethren New Yorkers, we are now permitted to cross a major body of water for free. The Staten Island Ferry fare as been voided and nullified. It's been removed and given the gate, 86-ed, negated, cancelled, shown the door, deep sixed, given the bum's rush and assigned to Davy Jone's locker.
Well, I can’t help but notice that the Staten Island ferry is getting more crowded these days. Asking around, I’ve learned that many of these newcomers are refugees from the express bus who have abandoned the construction-clogged artery that is the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. Well, ahoy mates and welcome aboard!
I have been driving or driven on this island all my life and recently I've been very dismayed by the driving abilities of my fellow roadsters. There's just something slightly reckless about they way they approach such things as intersections, traffic signs and highway dividers. More then once I've said to myself, "it's as if they've taken a different driver's test than me." Turns out, they have! Thanks to a highly-placed source in the DMV (who keeps referring to himself as "Deep Traffic" -- I don't know why, and I don't want to encourage it) I've obtained the driver's written exam and answer key that is presently in use:
I've been working on a new simulation computer game, but I need to BETA test the logic programming, so I thought I might run it by you, if I could. I'm trying to make it as realistic as possible.
