Wonderful quiz! As expected, I ended up with Hathaway running West Valley;
I didn't realize that he would be sharing that jurisdiction with Erskine,

Having seen Berlin, with its marvelous public transit system, I realize now
just how far in the past Hathaway is living when it comes to our town.
There is a main road near our house that we use nearly every day; it crosses
another main road, and there is a bus stop to the north and to the south of

bus drive away--probably in response to distant desperate cries of
"Hathaway, send a bus!"
