Lovely little feature on TdF coverage of how Richard Virenque is the 'hero' of Morzine. Delicious hypocrisy. Really confirms my suspicion that Armstrong is the convenient scapegoat because he is a git, rather than because he doped. Ie, it is even fine to admit you doped, as long as you were a gentleman while doing it ;-)

"Meanwhile, businessmen and intellectuals, wanting to be on the right side of public opinion, endorsed Hitler. They assured themselves and each other that his more extreme rhetoric was only for show..."

In Europe, the Middle East, Turkey and even here in South Africa (and dare I say America), very concerning elements of the Nationalist rhetoric and 'blame others for your misfortune' is appearing.
This little video is a good reminder that no nation is immune. We need to be constantly vigilant about this sort of thinking...

"Melania Trump spoke at the RNC Monday night. People quickly pointed out that parts of her speech appear to have been borrowed from Michelle Obama's 2008 speech at the DNC."

The level of idiocy of the Drumpfs is surpassed only by those who support them... #trump #drumpf

How Bicycles Change Lives #QHUBEKABIKES  

A bicycle sparks a positive reaction that changes every aspect of a child's life:
School attendance: Schools where children participate in BEEP see attendance rise by 18%
Academic results: Marks improve by 22% for children who are part of BEEP and riding a bicycle to school
Safety: 69% of children reported feeling safer commuting to and from school on a bicycle than when they walked
Free time: Commute time is reduced by 75% creating time for homework, chores and being a kid.
