    I like to read other blogs when I have the spare time. Yes, that's almost never. But Copenhagenize has such a cool name, I gotta peek once in a while. And when I read this article, about Marty Markowitz, Brooklyn Borough President, it immediately reminded me of Eric Ulrich.

    Read the article, and don't skip the comments. I love the outdoors, and I love cycling. But should there come a day when my MTB is set aside completely for my motorcycle, I still won't turn my back on cyclists. Mess with them, and they will eat you alive. Especially if you're a buffoon or jackass of a politician.

    Well Hack when I was younger a gray haired old man once told me, "Anyone with enough sense to hold any elected off and do the job, probably has enough sense to know better than to want that job in the first place." The longer I live, the more I understand the truth in those words.

    "Cycling is no substitute for mass transit..."

    China. I rest my case.

    Ironically, it's our bicycles that contribute to China's air pollution.

    That is funny. I would imagine a lot of their pollution is the junk they make to sell to us.
