This Is Where I Get Off

Standing at the corner of State and Madison today, waiting to cross the street,  I saw a huge CTA bus drive right up close to me and then go down the street  In the front window of the bus was a small almost obscure sign which read:  “Training Bus”.  The writing of the sign was such that you couldn’t read it until the bus was right up on you.  Maybe the innocuous sign is posted as a federal regulation:  to let the reader know why they were almost hit by a bus.  Or, maybe these are your last words, posted at the intersection of heaven and earth.

“The safest road to Hell is the gradual one — the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts. “  From the Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis
