Although the elevated line took longer, she preferred not to take the subway system, being slightly claustrophobic.

Aboveground Sayings By Shana Abe: I didn't think students were allowed below the main floor. I knew the kitchens were I didn't think students were allowed below the main floor. I knew the kitchens were there, as were most of the servants' quarters; the professors and Mrs. Westcliffe had their own aboveground wing on the other side of the castle.

Many of Las Vegas's problems were known to be buried in those same holes.

Aboveground Sayings By Lierre Keith: The necessity of political struggle especially means confronting and contradicting those on the left who The necessity of political struggle especially means confronting and contradicting those on the left who say that resistance is futile. Such people have no place in a movement for justice. For actionists who choose to work aboveground, this confrontation with detractors - and some of these detractors reject the idea of resistance of any kind - is one of the small, constant actions you can take.

Despite what much of the left has now embraced, we are not all equally responsible. There are a few corporations that have turned the planet into a dead commodity for their private wealth, destroying human cultures along with it. — Lierre Keith
