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...
