see, we aren’t the only ones…

February 6, 2007

The most common criticism I seem to encounter as a writer for the Salad is, “All you ever think about is porn and mass transit!” For the record, I’d like it to be known that I also think about kittens. But it turns out that the Salad isn’t the only place with nudity and public transport on the brains: Sofia Bulgaria is now showing soft-core porn at the central bus terminal.

So far the biggest complaint with Sofia’s program has been with the security guards who are too busy keeping their eyes out for nipples to keep watch for spoliators. The stated reason for the program is that it gives passengers something to keep them warm and occupied in the dead of winter. I like to think that this also leads to higher ridership on public transport, therefore fewer people in cars, less greenhouse gasses, and a safer world. Who says pornography does nothing for society?
