    Tried to get in but it was too crowded and I had to get back to work. Sigh. Place was poppin’ @ 6:00!

    Is there a legal limit on how many dogs one can consume?

    Why does a car driver honking at you make you think running red lights is OK?

    I did not argue this, did I? The point that I was making had to do with car drivers trying to use coercive measures to push me off of the road, the same road that I have every right to. I will not squeeze to the far right side- it’s dangerous. I will ride in the middle of the lane since it is my right and obey every other traffic rule as well. Most cyclist obey the law and we can stereotype the ones that dont- dude on fixed gear bike with huge bag, daisy dukes and tiny shoes. Too bad I too have a fixed gear bike with huge bag, daisy dukes and tiny shoes… RATS!

    I get honked at, spat at, cursed at and taunted by cars for abiding by the law far more often than I myself break it. While some idiot cyclists paint a bad picture for the majority, I disagree with this licensing campaign and will continue my wishful thinking in that my cycling goes hand in hand with my libertarian ideals. Ask any avid cyclist reading this thread and they will tell you that the larger issue is a lack of education and/or respect regarding the rules of the road on the behalf of most car drivers. One thing I continually ask myself when some asshole goes flying past me, screaming as if I pissed in his shoe, is “why is he/she so angry and why is he/she in such a damn hurry?”

    Three woots for Mennonites! Woot, woot, woot!

    Comparing Mennonites to Phelps is either inflammatory or ignorant, or both. Glad Menno’s are getting some defense up in this piece.

    Mennonites were hip to social action long before it was the hipster thing to do. Read up if you are not familiar with their history. Fascinating study

    Ahh… fellow lovers of local media. Does anyone remember the blizzard of ’03 when Chris Bradley stayed up for like 48hrs straight just to tell us that it was snowing outside our window? Rulers and all!

    I really like this idea of closing off High St at some point. Can’t drive on it anyway. Make it look like the French Quarter for a weekend.

    Hopefully next year there will be less construction and this can be plausible.

    So the issue is a volunteer shortage? Those threatening signs should have been substituted for volunteer requests from the beginning. Big black and white threating signs with city ordinance codes on them do absolutely nothing. People will be people. Here are questions that are running through my head:

    How many people are attending on the average now? Is bigger necessarily better? I am frankly really over the ridiculous crowd and, for the first time ever, I am ambivalent about attending this year.

    Is the volunteer force matching the expected turnout?

    Is it possible to come up with ways of reducing the turnout (and no, dont say that people would be deprived of the comfest “experience”)?

    Perhaps this is a subversive plan to save 300 police officers…
