the circus is coming to town.
[image]Mr. SK had mentioned the Critical Mass (Critical Mass is not an organization, it's an unorganized coincidence. It's a movement ... of bicycles, in the streets.) event when we had dinner on Thursday. It was one among many stories left unfinished in an extremely pleasant summer night. I thought about it again when the bikers rode pass the store last night for what felt like hours. I was sad I could not be among them. It just seemed like the coolest thing to be doing.
It was not until much later that I learned the bike ride had become VERY political. How could it not have at this point? The city is being invaded yet it is the new york tax-payer who is being harassed and inconvenienced the most. You are free to set up your tent anywhere. But we should be free to complain about it.
I hope Mr. SK has kept his cool as he does not seem to be very lucky when riding a bike.
And especially because WE have plans this Sunday.
Critical Mass arrests, blogged.
