    I forgot that they had this - thanks for the suggestion. I'll sit on it for a week or two and if I don't hear from them, I'll contact the ombudsman.

    Yes, that's the one. I know, it might be moved somewhere else - but I figured that this subforum is where those bicyclists with the most life experience (which I equate with wisdom) hang out. Cheers,...
  15. I thought it was April first for a moment this morning

    I had to look at the calendar to make sure it wasn't the first of April. During a radio piece on NPR about bike commuting in Los Angeles, I heard a citizen motorist state calmly that she felt free...

    Thank your lucky stars, your God, or Fate - an inch or two more towards you, and you would've been a goner.
