Thanks, Arlington, for Making Dallas Look Less Retarded

From The Summer of Steve

 

In a university city with a student population as large as Austin's in the 1970s, the idea of ridding Arlington of bicycles seems as outlandish as banning dancing.

Yet incumbents Kathryn Wilemon and Lana Wolff are up against two challengers, Kelly Canon and Julie Douglas, who say bicycle lanes don't belong in Arlington.

Douglas, 60, called bicyclists an "accident waiting to happen" and wrote in a voters guide that Arlington can't mix bicycles with drunken drivers.

Ugh. Can't we all just get along?

BTW...what movie is that from? That is from a movie right? Not from your ride last week in A-town...

I don't really know where it's from. I stole it from another website a few years ago.

BTW, do you work? Because you comment on my post very quickly. Not that I'm complaining.
