rain rain rain

Wow, I have been focusing on law school and time simply flies.

I have nothing really important to blog about. It is raining like crazy and hovering just above freezing...has been all week.

Just to mention, I have been spending time on www.bikeportland.org, watching the posts and keeping up on the issues. Most of the people on the site just like to post vitriolic comments, showing how "smart" they are. Bah.

If they spent half of their energy advocating for their position at council meetings or congressional representatives' town hall meetings, they would do more good. Could this be representative of society? we are too lazy to do the work and simply want to post from the luxury of our offices? I expect better from bike-commuters, since they are not afraid to get out and brave traffic.

I don't think most people realize that just by showing up to a meeting they are doing more than most people as far as advocacy and awareness. Have you mentioned that to them on the boards?
