Some issues of Magazine Street
Riding a bicycle around town can give you a perspective you don't get from the drivers seat. For instance: You might never realize what an impoverished state you live in until you observe for yourself that in Louisiana, even rich folks in a Mercedes or Lexus can't afford turn signals. Or this: For some reason, skinny people enjoy bicycles while fat people tend to prefer automobiles. And actions speak louder than bumpers, so if you cruise your big SUV through a busy crosswalk without looking, while yakking on your cellphone and balancing a Starbucks cup, your McCain sticker is redundant.
