4. SOUNDBITE 1 – Alejandro Campos , travel agent and Madrid resident (male, 30 years old, spanish , 20 sec): “You can’t close off one part of a neighbourhood and not another, you can’t have one street open, and another one closed. Either everything is closed, which would be catastrophic, or nothing is closed. But first, I think that we should do something with the metro, for example. Here in Puente de Vallecas we have one of the most crowded stations in Madrid.”

Bored with being a cubicle drone at Porsche, DeMuro quit to become a writer. His early columns drew praise for being humorous and honest, as evidenced by this 2013 review of the Chicago Auto Show.
