What's going on, Albuquerque?

Distracted driving has become an epidemic. The worst part is that most of those distracted drivers just don't realize that they are a major hazard to themselves and everyone else. That includes pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, and other car drivers. They all think they can handle it just fine.
Look up and drive!
Can't read the Journal article by a cyclist. No subscription. But, I'd like to throw one into the flame mix. How about walking on the "bike" path? Riders: shout out your presence a little louder and with enough distance for us to actually get out of the way. It would really hurt if you ran into us. And, manners go a long way...even on a bike. There are bad drivers as much as there are bad riders. Don't forget, it's a choice, and there are definitely a LOT of people out there who are just not paying enough attention in this busy, imperfect world.
The Journal has modified their policy whereby you can now just answer a couple of lame market research questions, and then read the article. Try it, you might like it. Last night, I told the anonymous research company that Uggs were going to take an increasing role in my fashion choices.
If Heimrich pulls it out, I'll forgive him for vacating a safe House seat but he has to stay put until he's at least 65.
Heinrich will stay put--as long as the voters allow him to. The Senate is where a politician has it made.
As far as the bike vs. motorist flame war, I really liked that opinion piece. Well thought out and stated. I like that he points out that he avoided being run over by the distracted driver by having to be alert himself. I cannot tell you how many times I have avoided being mashed by a distracted driver--because I KNOW they don't see me. Also, being lambasted for avoiding being mashed by the distracted driver is common.
Once I found out Heinrich's motivation for running for Senate, I forgave him for potentially squandering the "sure thing" House seat. The House is a 2 yr. gig- and the constancy of campaigning is grueling and tough on family life. Senate is 6 yrs, and you can get 4-5 years of good work done in-between campaign grinds...
