"They" really need to introduce a no snotting or spitting campaign. A pal was in town visiting and he clammed on the subway platform and was surprised when I freaked out on him. At least spit in the gutter - isn't it common sense you dont' want to track that crap into your home?

an anti-woooooing law circa now would be great. triple the penalty and fine after 11pm.

Excellent interview, Grieve, you made more salient points than I could count, and you did not sound like a crazed NIMBY asshole, but instead a rational, thoughtful guy. Congrats!
