i wouldn’t defend this show, because it is indeed Entourage East, and the characters are pretty cardboard, and there are definitely problems throughout. however, most of the questions raised here can be answered by watching the first season.

very true – the obstructions are more than ‘occasional’ – i ride in manhattan every day, and it’s honestly something like HALF the blocks in the bike lane on 1st ave have parked cars and trucks, garbage trucks (seriously), construction, and other obstacles. it’s honestly just impossible to deal with the bike lane sometimes, because people know the police don’t take it seriously.

This passion piece kind of feeds the fire of the debate that sustains the media frenzy around Sarah Palin. Which is too bad, because I, like most, would love to see her disappear back into her trailer park in Alaska or whatever.

However, the good news is, this is a mainstream article acknowledging the capacity for pain among animals, and it’s written by a meat-eater. In a sense, it’s lightly defending the animal’s right to life, which seems to be pretty progressive, coming from someone without a ‘visceral problem eating meat…’ I’ve been a vegetarian for seven years, and any support of animal rights, big or small, is a victory. Sarah Palin may be bad for just about everything now, but in the long run, she might be good thing, as her hatred and brutality ignites a lot of people’s passion for acceptance and non-violence.
