    I have a hard time believing that most cyclists fail to come to a full stop at a stop sign or stop light because they fear for their safety. I’ve asked several cyclist friends about this and not one of them cited safety as a reason for not coming to a stop. Instead, they all said that they did not want to lose their momentum by stopping.

    I grew up on U.S. military installations around the world back in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. I have no idea if this still happens, but back then, the military police would pull over cyclists who did not follow the rules of the road, just like they did with motorists. So, we made sure to signal our turns, stop at all stop signs and lights, obey the speed limits (some places had limits of 15 MPH in residential areas), and ride where we were supposed to. I learned how to behave as a cyclist.

    What really annoys me are the motorcyclists in my area who think it is fun to ride on just their back wheel. I’ve even seen one pass me while doing a “wheelie” on the local interstate where the speed limit is 70 MPH.

    That sounds like the first computer I used when I was a junior in high school. However, the first computer I owned was a TRS-80 Model I Level I. It had 4k of ram and data had to be stored on cassette tape using a regular cassette tape recorder.

    Why do you say Jackson was the least culpable? Buck Weaver hit .324 and played errorless ball. Was Jackson less culpable just because he got 12 hits to Buck’s 11? Both players new about the fix even though they may not have actively participated in it on the field.

    This explains things for me. My son and I actually saw a rainbow touch the ground once. I didn’t see a pot of gold. It was the same end that Arlo ran towards. So, I guess we saw the beginning of the rainbow, not the end.
