yes, that sounds more like reality. less like a hitchcock movie. ~the bikes~. “aaiee! they came flying in through the sunroof! they pecked at the walls! they watched me from the cargo rack! aaaaaaiieeeee!”

- many layers of incivility make
an entirely unappetizing cake.
blame who you want, there’s no law
that says you must see what others saw,
in fact the truth is the reverse;
and witnesses hush by convention,
and memories break through extension,
and cops’ reports are often worse.
critical mass’s vigilante socializing
can attract the unattractive both
inside and outside the ride.
but really, every good party
can end on a sour note,
and luckily, not every annoyed NIMBY
is operating heavy equipment, or
more parties would go bad than do.
to people who suggest more regulation
in response to incidents of violence
between revelers and the over-rushed,
don’t waste time playing chaperone.
no simple civil nuisance ordinance
can protect you from warmer weather.
- 700 comments and counting. several people appeared to have packed a lunch AND dinner for the occasion. at the point i stopped reading, some of the early anti-CM people had just switched to neutral based on the nightly KTVU video witnesses against the driver.
M&R need to retract or at least say the evidence no longer supports their rant.

- What does “spiritual” mean anyway?
i think churches are an economic measure as well as a community building and worship. i think people with education and resources want a sense that things will work out for the best, but that going to church, if it’s not an established or needful community practice, feels regressive. maybe because out in the world, religiosity is commonly reactionary, poisonous or cynical.
also, besides wanting a less anxious life, i think there’s a difference between emotional connection and religious sentiment, which is kind of a combined humility and commitment and a little vanity. sort of like, being here for a reason, to make the world better, but being very much a specialist in a labor-divided world, i’m not sure i know ‘best’ for sure.
maybe that’s it — “best” is a big problem for people.

we’re a bunch of trees, but we’re being a bad forest in terms of measuring the success of the ones growing at our feet
damn! why didn’t i see that before! we’re a fucking forest!

i like the idea of this as “the overdeveloped world.” it reminds me of my favorite fairy tale, goldilocks and the three levels of industrialization. “this mechanical assistance dependency is just right.”
yeah i’ve been trying to advance the notion that we’re slow on our environmental feet because so many caring people are in 20-yr hock and too nervous to budge.
