If I had my druthers I would put a moratorium on one more single "artistic" bike rack until there were enough regular bike racks for every frigging bike in the city. The Bee had a piece today happily announcing that 8 new artistic bike racks are going to be distributed throughout the city including a set of 3 that if you stand a few feet away combine to make a person! How cute! But can I lock my fucking bike to it? So infuriating. Davis has the best, most practical bike racks! Cute bike racks are for people who don't ride bikes.
Also in the Bee today is a story about the new public art that's going to be commissioned for the arena. The head of SMAC is heading it up, which is a good sign. The LOL in the article is that the King's president likened it to a "museum" and said he envisions it as a place for performance art!! hilarious. I can't wait to see a naked woman lay on a block of ice in the middle of it surrounded by a pentagram drawn with her own blood. On the halfcourt at halftime.
