It was one of those headlines on the front page of the June 9 print issue that has no actual story. I guess it didn't make it to their web site.

I saw something on the internet about The Printed Word but didn't understand that it was referring to words printed with ink onto paper!

Visibility is crucial when biking. Ride with a lit highway flare in each hand.

Now why didn't I think of that!!!!
