THE WORD THE NY TIMES DIDN'T WANT YOU TO SEE
In yesterday's Sunday Times: rampant joblessness, moms at war, Iranian nukes, out tweens, sippable coconut shells, Andre Leon Talley in what looked to be the world's biggest tallit. And a lot of other things. What was deemed too hot (or too stupid) for the Times: the other F word. This is the memorable name chosen by the public transportation system in Ticino, the Italian-speaking wilds of Switzerland I wrote about in Sunday's T Travel Magazine. You drive up into these beautiful mountains and there you see the red bus stops everywhere proudly announcing: Here is the Fart bus. Tell me, worldly sophisticates, you wouldn't slow down the car to take a picture? Liars. Anyway I included this very important piece of information in my story but the gatekeepers of decorum decided you shouldn't see it. But here it is.
Some people have mentioned that they're having a hard time viewing the version online so I've clumsily scanned a copy of the story in a big PDF HERE.
