wednesday august 12

today i was sitting on the subway going home, when it stopped at keele station. the doors opened and a woman that had been waiting on the platform darted into the car, grabbed a copy of the free subway "metro" newspaper that was sitting on the seat in front of me, and quickly ran off the car before the doors closed again. the sight was sort of surreal, and raised many questions: how long had she been waiting for a subway to come? if there hadn't been a copy of the paper lying in sight, what would she have done? why did she need to read it so badly anyway?
