Hello, another trike route:


So this route is in honor of Knit in Public day. I’m not a knitter but my wife is. (I spin. (And not just on my trike.))

I start at home and go down Rollins to West, basically, then to Stewart to Garth and the Library. I just caught the end of Chelsea’s time there, so I rode from there to the mall, via Ash. And then from the mall home via Fairview and some backstreets and Rollins again.

It was fun hanging out at the mall, I just wish I could have came up with more hooks for the game tomorrow, but I’m sure I’ll think of more as the game comes closer.

“Campaigning on an insistent call for change, Obama outlasted former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton in a historic race that sparked record turnout in primary after primary, yet exposed deep racial divisions within the party.”

This from Talking Points Memo.

I find it interesting that we can talk about the “deep racial divisions” but can’t be bothered to even consider the gender divisions. Villifying a woman for having the gall – The Gall – to run for president. It’s deeply, deeply sad.
