Tom Palermo.

As some of you might know Baltimore framebuilder Tom Palermo was killed while riding a few days ago. A fund has been set up to collect money to be put toward his children's education.

Please help if you can.

An update from the sentencing of Heather Cook who killed Tom Palermo. One quote that I thought really hit home was this: "“She made sure her dog was okay, but she didn’t care about another human”.
