Happy Town USA, Big-D Love, Ending Car Welfare, Bike Blogger Down…Weekly Chatter

Editor’s Note: The list of topics I’d like to write about keeps getting longer and my time to do so seems to be getting shorter. It’s a problem; I need some help prioritizing.

And so I ask: What’s got your interest about public space? What do you think MyWHaT should cover in the next 2-3 months? Please comment or send me message. Thanks!

Weekly Chatter


To wrap, a twitter extra: A series of tweets by @BikeShopGirlcom after she was in a crash while riding her bicycle last weekend. It’s shaken her up and her website currently reads, “I’m not really ready to post too many details” and directs readers to read her Twitter feed. Here is the narrative after the accident:

  • Oct. 1st, 6:48 PM: Hit by a car….ambulance ride..er..waiting on ct…had to pee .. may per the bed
  • 6:53 PM: Back and hip are messed up…could have been so much worse…. have neck brace and backboard.. still waiting on cat scan
  • Oct. 2nd, 12:17 PM: He must not have seen me and gunned it to make the light and left turn. He immediately saw me, but it was too late, and I had no where to go
  • 12:19 PM: The car slammed into the rear of my bike& possible my leg. Thank goodness I had my big mission workshop bag on as it took most of the fall
  • 12:25 PM: Physically I’m hurt mainly in the hips and back. I won’t be walking without assistance for a few days. Sitting or standing is the worst
  • 12:27 PM: Mentally I am really screwed up. I’m a safe rider and this was a calm afternoon and bike commute. Nothing i could have done different. Scary
  • 12:29 PM: Bicycling, commuting & encouraging others to do the same is my life. I was just hurt badly by that lifestyle..not sure how to swallow that
  • Oct. 6: I hate to say it, but I’m looking for a daily driver car or small truck now

The archive of material on her website is worth review while she regroups –> www.BikeShopGirl.com. Best wishes to Bike Shop Girl and I look forward to her publishing return.

Have a weekend!
