Rich Man Poor Man

In its majestic equality,
the law forbids rich and poor alike
to sleep under bridges,
beg in the streets
and steal loaves of bread.
~ Anatole France (1844 – 1924)

The sarcastic tone of the above quote should not be overlooked.  Still, it speaks volumes.   Below is a photo I took recently in a public restroom.   This law applies to all, rich and poor alike, although, I don’t much know of any rich person in a situation where he’d have to wash his socks in a public restroom.

(I also have a problem with private ownership of public spaces.  It doesn’t seem legal somehow, but no body’s fighting it.)
