Another Easter, another Big Wheel race. This time, a really wet one! The rain didn’t prevent a good crew of riders from donning costumes and sliding down Vermont street (the real crookedest street in San Francisco) on plastic toys of all kinds.
Stella and I got a good spot at the side of a curve where riders were sure to crash a lot, which makes for better pictures, of course. (Don’t worry, Stella was well out of the way of the danger.)
It’s really silly, stupid event, but it’s one of those things I’ve latched on to here in San Francisco. See you there next year.
In the short run, Republican extremism may be good for Democrats, to the extent that it prompts a voter backlash. But in the long run, it’s a very bad thing for America. We need to have two reasonable, rational parties in this country. And right now we don’t.
