Default Could Key West be a bike model for America?

I'm sure many people here have been already to Key West, so we can
talk a common language. Well, for those who don't, you see a lot of
bicycles around town, with some of the major streets having bike
lanes. There's also scooters and EVs, which goes to mean that SMALL IS
BETTER down there.

Not Main Street, America, right?

So could the be a model for the future of America, not far-fetched
models like Holland that would take a revolution (mine) and the firing
of our politicians, just an acceptance of civilized behavior among our
fellow Americans? In other words, CAN WE LEAVE THE JUNGLE BEHIND?

'Face it: Bigger is better. Since it's a jungle out there, where the
meek get eaten for lunch, if you wanna be Tarzan, you'd better swing a
bigger club.'

OK, what's the deal with this King of the Apes guy? All the posts I've seen
from him appear to be legitimate, some even raising very good points. This
Key West thing is a good example, yet the one and only reply I've seen so
far is "F-ck off." This seems to be a common response to many of Ape's
posts. Is there something about this guy I don't know?

He's a cross-posting, attention-seeking, ****ing idiot and continually
posts his nonsensical crap to motorcycle newsgroups.

I think it has to do with the sheep NOT wanting to hear the truth. Of
course, I'm the black sheep.

Funny, Key West is also a paradise for motorcyclists, like that
brutish one that said, "F-ck off."

He's a ****ing troll. Just another unthinking sheep that thinks the
world should be the way he wants it to be. Silly lamb doesn't realize
that the key is to take what you want and give nothing back. I take
the middle of the road for my half... ;^)

FWIW, Key West is an OK place to bicycle but nothing special. Same
with the rest of the keys.

Same with florida as a whole. Been there, rode out a hurrican in
Tampa, totally underwhelmed with the entire state.

Sounds to me like the rest of you guys are whipping him/her up pretty well.
Are you sure King of the Apes is the problem, or is it just that many of
this group's members are unwilling to "respectfully disagree" with him/her?

Just my unsolicited input. Papa Tom
