hello Velorution

Hi Velorution

Why grade separations exist... protect trains from moronic drivers, like this one.

On my bicycle ride home tonight, I arrived to find this situation around 6 p.m. at the rail crossing at County Road 32 (CR32) and County Road 105 in rural Yolo County, between Davis and Sacramento.

According to the Amtrak investigator I talked to briefly, the woman was heading east on CR 32, missed the turn, started down the bike path, realized her error, turned right, went up the embankment and basically flew to this position well down the tracks. Yes, she must have been flying, and may have been DUI. She was taking the breathalyzer as I took these images; that's her with the CHP officer in far background (click on image to enlarge.)

All Capitol Corridor trains were held in both directions, unfortunate for hundreds of passengers. Fortunately, I was on my bike and missed this delay...and missed this driver who is a real hazard!

XTC: Dear God

Great song by an underrated 80s pop group XTC. My sentiments, exactly.

More on Downer cows from HSUS

Meat production consumes more energy and creates more pollution than transportation. This video left me wondering about the mental health of the workers at these auction lots or packing plants. Do they leave the brutality at the workplace when they go home? Or do they share it with their wives and children?

Big Papi, little puppy

Image of David Big Papi Ortiz kissing his dog Mikey during spring training 2007 in Ft. Myers FloridaI'm a dog-loving Red Sox fan. How could I not post an image like this, of Boston slugger David "Big Papi" Ortiz, kissing his dog Mikey during conditioning exercises at the Sox' spring training facility in Ft. Myers, Florida.
