My friend, Scott, brought this Wall Street Journal article by P.J. O’Rourke to my attention in the hopes it would raise my hackles. Scott’s a good friend. I now pass it along to all of you in the hopes you will think I’m your virtual friend.
Mr. O’Rourke is an award-winning author, known for his superb use of satire. This is the only possible explanation for the drivel contained within this piece, which brings to mind the axim: it is better to be quiet and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
In other news, there are lots going on as the weather continues to improve:
– Cherri has officially started her cross-country tour.
– I managed a 21-mile ride on a weeknight, swallowed my first bug of the year, and scared the bejeebers out of a nice lady who was struggling to pedal up a hill. I really do try to alert these folks before I’m next to them. Honest.
– And finally, I saw yet another major car accident just outside my neighborhood. Nobody appeared to be seriously hurt, but both cars were totaled. The cars may be solving the traffic density problem all by themselves.
