Public Service Alert From Gleason’s Gym

Michael Woods



If you live in NYC, and take the subway, you well know that on most any ride, you will be seeing and hearing from a person or two seeking loose change, a donation of some sort. The transit system…

..milieu is a smart target for a seeker, because the car is often pretty packed, and also, the marks are confined for a length of time.

Also, the confinement and proximity to others can result in some feeling guilted into donating. It’s easier to spurn requests when no one else if there to judge.

To that end, here is a public service alert from Gleason’s Gym, aimed at riders of the city subway.

See below, and pass it on:

And that aside, Bruce and the gang also want to send out salutations, and best wishes for a majestic 20202.
