*Barry, in CO, sent me this photo that I presume he found on the interwebs. It reminds me of a NYT story I saw last week about how high gas prices = the demise of the distant suburbs.
*A doctor in MA bought a bunch of ZPG stickers so that he can give ‘em out to patients/friends who commute by bike

Dear Grand Poobah Jonny5,
I recently purchased some sexy cycling gloves, but they’re made of goatskin. And I have a ZPG patch on my bag. Is it sacrilege to decorate oneself in such a fundamentally contradictory combination? Or do you consider it a victory for the ZPG cause to have the carcass of a goat on one’s hands?
I submit myself to your higher authority on this subject.
“Fear not, your actions are by no means contradictory. As you suspected, it is indeed a victory to have one’s hands decorated with the skin of a goat carcass. Hopefully the goat died a painful death, and was made into many pairs of gloves. And hopefully other goats out there will see you zip by and learn that such is their fate as well.”
Perhaps I should look into making patches out of goat skin…
