Cyclist taking it to the next step.
Civil action
If this Warne fellow has half a brain, or a lawyer with half a brain, he'll pay up and be done with it.
Couldn't he be charged with leaving the scene of an accident, if his car actually hit the cyclist?

Warne? I hear that and think Warne Marsh. Ne plus ultra is a great disc.

Marsh often dueled with Konitz on sax, as often with Tristano on piano.

What does this have to do with cycling?

Just the name. One Warne is apparently a dildo, the other was an artist.

As I view that article, I'm offered "selections video" to the right. (Shouldn't that be "video selections"? Well, whatever.) Currently top of the list is:

Woman charged with having sex with skeleton / A 37-year-old Swedish woman pleaded not guilty to charges she engaged in sexual activities with a skeleton.
Having only drunk one (1) coffee today, I don't think I'm yet psychologically prepared for this video.

(And is this really the Sydney Morning Herald? I smell Murdoch.)

"Cycling or walking to school increases a child's ability to concentrate in the classroom, the results of a Danish study published Friday showed."

I sent this article to several higher-ups at my school today (with a google translation)--they like to say how they serve a good ¥100 breakfast to get students up, awake, and to school on the early side.

I suggested they open the gym and pool mornings from 7 to 9, and that they should especially encourage the heavier and smoking faculty to go. (far more efficient faculty development than sitting thru a guest lecture or reading another email about it!!)
