What do San Francisco, Philadelphia, Nashville, Anaheim, and Portland have in common? They all seem to believe in the importance of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Free WiFi Access.
"Free", that is, in the sense of "a free education" or "free health care".

Here's a hint: if you just absolutely have to loot money from the productive classes; if you just positively can not help exploring the wallets of others with your itchy city-council paws, then how about using the ill-gotten fruits of your non-labor to update your Victorian sewer systems or Eisenhower-era transportation grids, rather than pouring the loot down an inane sinkhole in a desperate attempt to be the first "CyberTown, USA."
