The Urban Myth

Pepsi Corporation doesn't trust us city folk, eh? Well, I like Coca-Cola better anyway.

I know there are too many people in the city, all wanting to get their hands on as many packets of mild sauce as possible. To Taco Bell's credit, they make a person really strategize about how to go about getting these packets. They make us really think about how to best perfect our meal--and teach us valuable lessons about neccesity versus want. We do not NEED 20 packets of sauce per meal. What we NEED is 6-7 packets of sauce and a bean burrito, piping hot.

While I can look on the bright side of the situation, I cannot ignore the issue at hand: Large corporations believe that suburban residents are more trustworthy than ubanites--because they have money, don't like diversity, appreciate family values, have fewer homeless people. It's not a pretty picture they've developed in their skyscraper offices, looking down upon the city streets.

I agree, and liken the hot sauce packet situation to the war on drugs. If you legalize them, they won't be hoarded and abused. Screw the man, man.
