I've NEVER heard someone say "Man, what an easy time at the DMV!" The easiest time I've ever had took a literal pandemic, and it still wasn't convenient because I had to wait months for an appointment.

And I thought about the people who don't have easy access to the internet; how are they going to make appointments? I don't want a solution that further disenfranchises the vulnerable.

We need to have universal internet access in this country; the pandemic has definitely highlighted that. Kids are sitting in library parking lots to get wifi to access their classes, which is definitely not ideal.

I hope the pandemic has brought it home more that the internet is no longer a luxury item. There is virtually no task of my job I can perform without the internet, even if I were onsite. One time when the internet was down in the building my supervisor just told me to take a long lunch, lol.

I remember one time when the internet went out right before I was supposed to do the night audit at a hotel - never had such an effing nightmare. I could not actually check anyone out.

So many other countries have better internet infrastructure than we since we always love to sacrifice poor people to the gods of capitalism. Sigh.

We can't get ANYWHERE on a stimulus package because the GOP wants to eff the poor people and protect corporations.

And it's not an abstract thing - the DC public transit system is on the verge of collapse because of COVID. We need those funds.
