While the time capsule was getting all the attention (you can read more about her in the preceding posts or in the Greenpoint Gazette), I snuck off with some of the real stars.
That’s right. Below, you can catch the exclusive interview that The Puru managed to snag with the 5th graders from Ms. (Julie) Feinberg’s class at PS 31, who contributed a book about sewage to the capsule and may be the only people alive to see it in 50 years. What will Newtown Creek look like then? What does a digester egg do? And why is “feces” the preferred term for that stuff that comes out of our bottoms?
5th graders aren’t afraid to tell it like it is.
A most productive President’s Day to you, and peaceful pooping.
