Titled "DANGEROUS BIKE RIDERS RUN WILD WITH IMPUNITY IN NYC" and written by Kyle Smith, the NY Post have published another 5th grade level, whiny and allusion-filled rant about something that irks them. I'm not familiar with Mr.Smith's writing, nor do I make a point of regularly reading the Post (if you are unfamiliar, it is a NYC establishment, a surprising right-leaning tabloid that takes great pride in its punning headlines and always a fun read) but when they attack something I'm passionate about, its hard not to pay a little attention.
According to Mr.Smith, cyclists exist in three categories:
- Messengers of Mayhem
- Szechuan Psychos
Yup, that's pretty much all you need to know. Mr.Smith has divided us along sartorial and racial lines. Class.
There is a ton more that could be editorialized here, but really, it would be like fighting a Flaming Dr.Pepper shot with a forest fire.
