Oh please.  I don't know where you've been hiding out for the last half
a decade or so, but around here, every McDonalds, Starbucks, Sam's Club,
Home Depot, Lowe's, and most libraries, hotels, hospitals, and 
laundromats offer WiFi, and those are just the ones I can readily 
think of.

The level of wishful-thinking implied by the quoted text about how the
Internet works is mind-boggling.
