The crazy guy
This disturbing picture appeared this morning with a story on the website of Bicycle Retailer and Industry News. The story was about the editor of Bicycling Magazine (and several other journalists) going mountain biking with Dubya. I find it a little distressing that the village idiot happens to look like that crazy, bike-riding homeless guy we've all encountered at some point. You know, the guy who at first glance looks pretty normal, but then you get close and he has that disheveled appearance and crazy look in his eye. Then he sees that you ride a bike too, so he starts ranting in some slurred, indecipherable speech pattern about the voices in his head, the FBI's plot to kill him, some sort of "axis of evil," weapons of mass destruction in Iraq ...
You know what has to be done. Keep moving. Avoid eye contact. You don't mess with crazy people.
