Okay, so it’s pouring rain as I drive through Downtown Salisbury, and see the scene pictured here in front of the GOB and thought, ”well, there are either a lot of stupid people who work at the GOB who picked the middle day of a predicted 3 day rain forecast to ride their bikes to work, or, there’s at least 8 college scholars who rode Downtown to sit about, study, and take advantage of the free WIFI.
Well, if you take a close look at the third photo, you will notice they are all locked together by one big, long cable lock! Soooo, this is nothing but a display of Democratic magnitude! Set up by the Mayor, no doubt, to make it look like there are actual people who ride bikes to Downtown! Since he spent tens of thousands of dollars (yours and mine) to paint pictures of bikes on the pavement (without lane lines @ the most dangerous road to ride a bike, and b Ike lanes that run right into parking places and begin and end arbitrarily), he finds nobody is using them! Gee, willikers, Batman! And, to top it off, if you or I DID decide to ride bikes to Downtown in a rainstorm, THE BIKE RACK IS FULL AND WE CAN’T USE IT!!!!!
Let’s see, about a thousand for the rack, and about 4 grand worth of bikes to instill in peoples’ heads the idea that Downtown is a bike-able destination, and John Q. Public can’t use it!
As my head continues its explosion…
