  1. my fucking jesus. the pics of the truck o' bikes and the use of the jaws of life are insane.

  3. so fucking ridiculous. i know a guy who was arrested at the RNC ride and *just* had his court date last week. he was on a bike but didn't even participate in the ride, just stopped to check it out... the cops are jerks, but the real question is this: who is giving them their orders?

  4. "The thought police would get him just the same. He had committed—would have committed, even if he had never set pen to paper—the essential crime that contained all others in itself. Thoughtcrime, they called it. Thoughtcrime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for a while, even for years, but sooner or later they were bound to get you."
    -Orwell, 1984

  5. Oh My God Tod, I cannot believe how much things have changed since the RNC came to town. Now the NYPD has been cut loose on the new terrorist with their new terrorist weapons, BIKES Yikes!!!!.

    Parade Permit? What a joke, why don' we make it where 20 cars or more getting together on any street have to get a parade permit, or we will take their cars and put them in jail, how about that my good friend Tod? Then all of Gotham can be one huge parade everyday!

    I love parades. Mike you need to tell Kelly to C.H.I.L.L
