CMER | Think its too cold to ride a bike on Friday's Critical Mass, you're not alone. You can join in the festivities as we celebrate the retirement of police cheif Bruce Smolka, the kind soul who started the crack down on those bicycle terrorists. If it wasn't for him, thousands of cyclists would be able to ride their bikes every month in peace and fun.

Eugene Weixel | Ah, armchair revolutionaries of the imperialist North, ever vigilant and on the lookout for sellouts and misleaders, particularly those found confronting the world's only superpower. Of course these are "sellouts" of the Third World who are actually responsible for the well being of their countries.
Lucine Kasbarian | Book Review of "Life In Prison" Written by Stanley “Tookie” Williams with Barbara Becnel. As a teen, Stanley “Tookie” Williams thought prison was glamorous. He joined a notorious gang in Los Angeles called the Crips, and eventually became the gang’s leader. Convicted of killing four people and sent to prison, Tookie was sentenced to death. While held in prison, Tookie decided to reach out to kids who are at risk of following in his footsteps, show them that there is nothing glamorous about prison, and urge them to make better life choices than he had.

RNC Welcoming Committee | Every four years, in two very lucky cities, big money gets thrown around while look-alikes from opposite ends of a closed circle step up to their podiums and spout nonsense. RNC. DNC. Whatever. The point is that once the conventions are over, once November is come and gone, once the inauguration is only an unpleasant memory, people across this stolen land find themselves in pretty much the same place as before: a bad one. more... 0 Comments
StayFree! | My new favorite blog, Streetsblog, recently posted a fantastic video interview with transit guru Sam Schwartz (aka Gridlock Sam). Schwartz's thirtysomething years as a traffic engineer give him the kind of historical perspective we haven't seen for years among New York's powers that be.

I loved this interview so much that I transcribed it. You can read the full edit below the fold.
