See You In Four Years

a.) Michael Bloomberg
b.) Bill Gates
c.) Donald Trump
d.) Mark Zuckerberg

Four significant public figures, one insignificant blogger's question. Which of these four would you select as most likely to endorse the idea of putting TV screens at eye level in men's urinals? This is not a fantasy. Thanks to a friend's comment, I recently had cause to re-live that exact experience after re-reading my blog post entitled "Really?", published four years ago today. I'm curious to know if any women reading this have since been similarly bombarded while sitting in a stall as I was while doing my business at that chain restaurant in Lawrenceville, NJ in March 2013.  

I'm genuinely thrilled this latest technological travesty doesn't appear to be widespread - yet. Still, the septic air surrounding some of our current public discourse and growing attachment to screens and tweets vs. faces and nuanced thought leads me to think it's just a matter of time. Runaway egotism and political snarkiness aside, I sincerely hope I'm wrong. Next report: March 7, 2021.

  1. I have never had the (dis)pleasure of a TV screen while sitting in a stall. Thank god. I would select Donald Trump as the most likely candidate....Pretty awful.
