My wife and I did the TransAm in 1979. Nothing like biking up a hill on a two-lane road with no shoulders and a tractor trailer behind you and a vehicle going the opposite way. In some instances, the smart thing to do is dismount and move to the shoulder.

Well, tail, I agree with you. Bicyclists have to show some damn common sense. One, why endanger yourself as a bike rider, and two, why tick drivers off needlessly. By the way, 99.99% of the drivers I come across are great. And, oh, our local city council wanted to add bike lanes to a well-traveled street by dropping it from four lanes to two lanes, a center lane, and two bike lanes. I wrote one city official saying that was a stupid idea as that road was heavily traveled and that there were plenty of parallel streets.

Phony conservative Joe Manchin, who won his U.S. Senate seat in West Virginia with an ad showing him shooting a gun, said, "I don't know anyone (who) needs 30 rounds in a clip."

CNN's Don Lemon, who does not fit the usual profile of the avid hunter and outdoorsman, demanded, "Who needs an assault rifle to go...
