Sunday, Sunday, Sunday… Race fans, hot rodders… Are you ready to sit on your ass in your back yard and not do a damn thing all day?
Sign me up, Chief.
Did I ride a bike today? No. Did I even look at my bikes today? No. What did you do, fat boy? I laid in the grass with my daughter and watched clouds. And I uploaded some pics from Leadville.
Big Pun and Snake share a birthday today. So, tip of the pint to those two bastards. You made it another year. Now give me a dollar.

Subject: Bike paths are not transportation infrastructure according to our Secretary of Transportation
Yo Big Jonny,
I figured I could really make your day with a nice little quote found here (about a third of the way down) pbs.org
“GWEN IFILL: Aren’t many of those projects, even though they’re special interest projects, aren’t they roads and bridges, often?
MARY PETERS: Gwen, some of them are, but many of them are not. There are museums that are being built with that money, bike paths, trails, repairing lighthouses. Those are some of the kind of things that that money is being spent on, as opposed to our infrastructure.”
So next time you are commuting by bike, remember, it’s not transportation. And of course lighthouses, which protect transportation don’t apply either. Like those lines on the freeway, or guard rails, completely not related to transportation. Probably a liberal conspiracy.
Breaks your heart, doesn’t it?
So you want to ride your bike to work because it will keep you in shape, it’s a time you can exercise and not be away from your kids (you’d be using that time to commute anyway) and, hell, save a few bucks on gas. A tank in my car these days is $50 bucks.
And we call can use and extra fifty now and again, am I right?
Too bad riding your bike isn’t something Mary Peters, the United States Secretary of Transportation, concerns herself with.by
