In Greensboro, NC we have a little weekly journal called the Rhinoceros Times. It is remarkable mostly in that it provides a conservative view of local and national politics including the city council. It's always nice to read another point of view. Anyway, within this journal is a unique column called 'The Sound of the Beep'. This column prints recorded messages from anyone who wishes to call a local number. Usually it is full of intolerance and idiocy, outmoded ways of thinking and the occaisonal 'shout out'. Quite often it's good for a laugh. This passage was found in this weeks issue.
bolded text mineWell, it's springtime and once again all motorists and our families are threatened. I'm not talking about foreign terrorists but self-centered Americans. They're easily identified wearing $200 Spandex uniforms and riding $900 bicycles. But you may not see them until it's too late. When you round the curve and see another car in our lane trying to avoid a person on a bike, you'll know what I mean. It happened to me, and it can happen to you. I think we should band together and make these people know they are not welcome on our roads.
I do not post this to inflame, I merely wish to afford others the oppurtunity to respond. The number, if you wish to make the call, is (336) 273-0898. The message limit is one minute per call, two calls per week. Just to reiterate, this point of view is not 'typical' of the South, NC or Yanks so I'm not looking for posts about 'ignorant rednecks'. I happen to like the South, particularly NC.
