My mom did this. My parents have been married 25 years. It's not romantic but it worked?
I live in DC and I bike to work most days, although it does involve some non-ideal paths (including 3 blocks of sidewalk and people turning onto the highway even when I have the light.) I like it. I wouldn't do it if it took more than 30 minutes, or I had to carry around more than my lunch and my gym bag in my panniers.
I'm happy for you and that fair sounds so great! I would bring like five lactaid pills and go nuts.
As a fellow DC-gentrifier, I really appreciated this article, and I don't think the fact that it has no solution and that it is full of rage makes it any less well-written. Yes, it makes it frustrating, but if there was some neat way to solve the problems that come with gentrification, we'd probably know about them already. It's enough for an article to give you something to think about, it doesn't have to solve the problems of the world.
This seems like a good idea, but sometimes reading about new, improved antirape devices makes me feel like we're distracting ourselves from bringing about some new, improved antirape attitudes from men.
What a great idea! And what a sweet birthday party.
I really loved this.
@Wendy T Seconded. I think that many people are drawn toward the profession for the ability to use force.
My one thing is to finish some blog posts and return books to the library. I should probably also call my Granny.
