I used to hang them up. They were quite robust, over 15 years of
putting them up (probably 60 in count) had me drop quite a few. None
fractured, most did not require adjustment, only the year the dog was
exited and decided to attack, charging with both paws. Even that was
recoverable IIRC.

Hey, you want to help make things better? I hear Ohio is *the*

pivotal battleground for election of the next POTUS. I know we can

You did it!

Sounds like Romney would have lost even if he had won Ohio, so it
wasn't just Ohio folks who did it.

I was more gratified by Sherrod Brown's successful defense of his
Senate seat, despite record-setting avalanches of attack money
courtesy of "Citizens United," the Koch boys, etc. The spending in
Ohio was simply obscene. People in other states probably can't
conceive how heavily we were inundated. And the candidate they picked
to oppose Brown really looked bad to me. (Just to be clear, I'm not a
one ticket man.)

OTOH, I guess the TV stations and newspapers reaped real benefit. I
wonder if anyone's tallied that boost to Ohio's economy?

I made regular contributions to Mr Mandel since he announced, not having
any qualified candidates running in my own state or districts.

You do not like the State Fossil of Wisconsin (aka Tommy Thompson)?

Not impressed with Thompson - I like Tony Earl better (since he made a
nice comment about my tuxedo cat).

Oh, and if anyone thinks an argument here will change anyone

else's opinion, you might explain your reasoning.

Good heavens, how old-fashioned, actually trying to persuade people of something.

But there is new and better data, which, interestingly, the usual ******s claim not to have read. The question arises, are people like Sherman and Krygowski really so thick and badly educated as their refusal to consider the New York study suggests, or are they stupid-smart, not reading those particular facts because they know there is no answer, that those numbers make a killer argument for an MHL in the United States. It doesn't take a lot of brains to see that, actually, I suspect anyone who can get an engineering degree, even from a third-rate American college, can handle the simple statistics required.

Of course, it may just be that I've burned them too often, and that eventually even such thickos learn to stay away from fire. That's a depressing thought, because the necessary corollary is that they're dumb enough truly to believe the that anti-helmet zealotry they spout so religiously.

Bicycle riding conditions in NYC have ****-all to do with riding
conditions in most of the US. Besides, being NYC, everything is suspect.
