    Article in the Dispatch today...

    http://www.dispatch.com/live/content...M.html?sid=101

    Good article highlighting one of the local bike commuters.


    So the week I start seriously considering a car free life in the near future, my car breaks down and this article is in the paper.

    Is this a sign or something??

    Maybe it is. I was inspired to give my car away by three things:

    1. A brief look at my budget;
    2. A careful reading of the IPCC reports;
    3. An article in my local newspaper about a family of four that had been car-free for 20 years.

    It was the article that tipped the balance. The family described was a normal family, not a bunch of hippies reeking of patchuli. They just happened not to spend any money on cars. It inspired me to get rid of mine, after a bit of trepidation.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
