The Military Budget as Cookies

This excellent animation from TrueMajority shows in graphic detail (using Oreo cookies) how ridiculously, large the military budget is, and how we could solve many domestic problems with a modest 12% cut. A must-see. (watch it now)

Justice for cyclists?
Here are all the local cases we know of in which the motorist was at fault, didn't try to flee, and received at least a traffic ticket for their crime. (Yes, there's only one.)


John Howell (4-16-98, 7:30pm) ... diagram of collision (#5)

John Howell was traveling east on Steck, crossing Mopac, and was hit by a car traveling west and making a left turn to go south on the access road. John suffered a broken leg and a grade 3 separation of his right shoulder. The driver actually got a ticket (for failure to yield right of way)! John got a lawyer (Patricia Kelly) before he left the emergency room. As of July '98, John expected it to take another month or so to settle with the motorist. John is former president of the Austin Cycling Association. If an experienced cyclist like John Howell can get hit by a car that he could see in front of him, we all can.

I've tried without success to get local groups to add their events to this calendar (Bike Texas, the Yellow Bike Project, City's Bicycle Program, Bike Austin, etc.)
If you'd like to help edit the calendar, or at least add your group's events to it, then please let me know!
