Three deaths in two weeks in my home town. We're not talking cyclists having accidents. In each case the rider was run through. These were vehicular homicides in the most egregious way. What does the local press do? They write articles about the accident which include tips for cyclists. Here's a thought. Write a fucking article with tips for drivers. Here's the first tip:

Story
Introduction
I was born on a small, unremarkable, water and rock world occupying the third orbit out from an unremarkable yellow, main sequence star. I live and continue to endure despite the universe's best efforts.

At least that's the story until I can think of something more enlightening.
