This is an awesome rebuttal to that garbage Dan Walters wrote. I want the debate to move away from bikes v. cars and towards infrastructure and laws that can help both! As that guy points out, most cyclists own cars! Why does it have to be adversarial?
I definitely recommend Tribes at CapStage. It deals with issues of deaf culture and some of it is in sign language (translations are projected on the stage). Some really excellent performances (except for one I didn't like but I won't name names). Two of them, the two that sign in the play, were two of the best I've ever seen on stage. I cried at the end of the first act and at the end of the play.

That Walters column might be the worst thing the Bee has printed this year, but it goes a long way to show how much some people really don't understand what it's like to bike around -- Bee columnists, some city traffic engineers and policymakers, and plenty of average Joes.

Did you catch the brief Insight segment on Friday on sidewalk riding? Hilary Abramson (whose article started the sidewalk riding brouhaha) said she spent plenty of time educating people about riding on the sidewalk, but it didn't sound like she did anything to try to figure out *why* they were on the sidewalks. Aggravating!
