    Tandempower you make sense with this. Unfortunately there is no real free market in the USA. Corporations with power to grease palms get special treatment. I sympathize with the mom and pop stores....

    Good luck. I'm glad you're alive and can continue on. If your attacker has good insurance it will be easier for you. Get a good lawyer.

    Merry Christmas.

    This reminded me of one year as a pre-teen when I got a single speed Schwinn bicycle as a present. I enjoyed riding it all around the quiet neighborhood streets in the morning....
