Bring Your Own Big Wheel 2010

BYOBW 2010

BYOBW 2010 set on Flickr

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.

A good read from Paul Krugman : Going to Extreme

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.

And, another good read from the Times : Tea Party Lights Fuse for Rebellion on Right

“It’s either you’re with us or you’re the enemy,” he said.
