Had me worried there, James. I thought YOU'D been hit!
Terrible, and all too common around here. The police really don't seem to care, and that's a VERY sad thing to have to say.
The blatant racism in some of the comments is truly depressing. I thought Colorado was a little more progressive than that, but apparently not.
Wow! it's hard to tell which it is that Americans hate most - cyclists or foreigners.
There are 10 types of people in the world - the ones that can count in base 2, the ones that can't count in base 2, and the ones that didn't expect this to be in base 3.
"Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."
What tickles me are the unabashed nationalists who spout off on comment boards (like this one) about speaking English yet fail to use proper English grammar themselves
Yeah on many message boards all it takes is one "damn illegal" or "speak english" comment to ignite a volley of back and forth trite dribble, all of which has been seen, said, and heard before.
And the FAR MORE important issue in this case is an issue of two human beings: A guy biking to work, and a F-cker that sailed into him and drove the hell off without thought to the person he just mowed down. In cases like that it's simply not relevant as to the country they're in, and the language they speak.
crap, i ride through that intersection daily. it's in a relatively diverse neighborhood. many cyclists, many immigrants. i feel like we get along great. lots of smiling and waving.
i feel most threatened by the large car drivin'/suburban-livin' "tourists" who pass through the neighborhood for the great mexican food before returning to outskirts of town to complain on the internet about immigrants.
May I respectfully nominate that as post of the week? +100"tourists" who pass through the neighborhood for the great mexican food before returning to outskirts of town to complain on the internet about immigrants.
