Pulitzer Prize Winning Piece : Why pedestrians should not stand on the street to hail a bus

My frustration is that regardless if I am able to write a Pulitzer-prize-winning piece on why pedestrians should not stand on the street to hail a bus, why you should cross at the crosswalk only when the light says "walk", or how falling in line properly makes lives easier, the class ABC will only be nodding their heads in agreement while reading their broadsheets, while those in the DEF class will have learned nothing with their Abantes and Tonites and will continue to hail the bus on the first (and sometimes 2nd) lane, they'll still cross in the middle of the road even if the light says don't walk, and they'll still be crowding train and elevator doors to get ahead.



That is why I believe the "Thinking Class" is overrated if they are not also "doing" anything or if their actions aren't reaching the right audience. And that is how the corrupt politicians will continue to fool the public because the majority will not even know about all their SALNs, but they will see these politicians eating with them in a boodle fight.

So what do we do about this?

My simple though on why pedestrians should not stand on the street to hail a bus......
