Well, this sort of spoiled my holiday.
I'm worried about my blood pressure, so I haven't read the article yet, and God knows, I dread reading the Sound-Offs. But I have been lurking in the sewer that is PI's Sound-Offs for the past six months, trying to digest what the arguments are for anti-cycling policies. So I can pretty much guess what the article is about, and what the Sound-Offs will be.
But apart from the content of the article or the Sound-Offs, what strikes me is that there's a meanness in this world that makes people, when they are distressed, seek out and attack the weakest, rather than the cause of their distress. Our leaders did it when we invaded Iraq, and people in the Puget Sound area, chafing at growing traffic congestion, deteriorating infrastructure, and the taxes required to support it, are doing it when they turn on cyclists.
More after I read the article. But I encourage you all to respond, one way or another.
