get off "my bike lane"? What is a driver had a blog get out of "my crosswalk"?

Some people in this City are fervently douchebaggish.

"I missed this news of the one and only Mick Farren's death"
what a drag, I missed this too. I look at his blog frequently. He had been writing another book in his renquist series. He was one of the good ones. His old sci fi holds up very well, he was way ahead of the cyberpunks (e.g, The Feelies).

I want to start a blog called "Traffic lights apply to self-entitled bike riders too"

grieve, grump -- Yes, Mick Farren was one of a kind. He was wickedly clever and a hell of a lot of fun to be around. I scarcely knew him, but I miss him.
