...on biking

1925 - 2007
Americans are broad-minded people.
They'll accept the fact that a person can be an alcoholic, a dope fiend, a wife beater, and even a newspaperman, but if a man doesn't drive, there is something wrong with him.

"How Un-American Can You Get?"
Have I Ever Lied to You?

1966
Today's post was inspired by Fritz over at Cycle-licious as well as The Bike Riding Donut Guy in Portland. Today the latter posted a YouTube vid of cagers grappling (unsuccessfully) with icy streets during this week's snowstorm. I'm sure if Buckwald had lived to see it, he would have had something very funny to say...

That video is *awesome* -- like a real-life version of that old arcade game "Asteroids."

I know it's unfair to criticize or make fun of folks who aren't used to driving in the snow&ice. However, you'd think that all but a few idiots would know to GO SLOW ... preferably by bike or foot.
