    Investigative Journalism: The Saga of the Mystery Bicycle

    Some hard-hitting stuff.

    And I thought the local news here was slow. . . .

    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    I remember when I worked at a Fortune 100 company, when I came in, there was this one bike in the rack, and it looked like it wasn't touched in years... a Huffy, tires flat, just leaning on the ground, and it stayed untouched for the whole time I worked there. Yes, its an X-Mart bike, but it could have been given to Goodwill or the Salvation army rather than just take up space on a rack.

    At least I was able to quickly figure out what was up with this abandoned bike, but it's a sad story:
