A little respect

The Daily Snooze recently published a letter from some grouchy jackass (I thought that was my title) suggesting that cell phone users and cyclists should be banned from Anchorage's streets during the winter months. Not a big surprise. This whole stinkin' country's full of double-butted car junkies.

But on Wednesday, my munching of the morning Wheaties was pleasantly interrupted by the reading of the following letter from someone named Rob E. Earl:

"Considering the automobile's many negative impacts upon society (environmental damage, road fatalities, rising obesity, sprawling pavement, etc.), one would think biking would be more respected. Shouldn't those who brave the winter streets on two wheels be revered as persons leading the way toward a new, sustainable modus vivendi for society at large, rather than be harassed, mocked or otherwise denigrated as they so often are?"

Damn straight.
