Hump Day

Good news: Thomas Lynch pleads “Guilty.” Remember – the roads are for everybody. That type of behavior is only acceptable behind a shopping cart on Black Friday, not the steering wheel.

Bad news: George Ryan is appealing to President Bush for clemency, after being left off the pardon list. The man who used state finances as his and his friend’s own private campaign financing, and probably has more than a little blood on his hands in the Licenses-For-Bribes-Scandal could get out of prison after having served less than a year.

Even worse news: It’s with Dick Durbin’s help. I know you are sympathetic, but people are dead because of this man. It's more than just political scandal.

More bad news: Thanks, China!

Better news: Traffic is much lighter today. Ironically, today is my first long Thanksgiving Eve drive, ever.

Cuter news: Meet our new dog, Jack

The best news: my new bike arrives sometime next week. A Max Lelli Tiburzi Pro, with Dura Ace/FSA and Hed Stinger 60 wheels.

Gimme Hed til I’m Deda.

I am glad to hear about the conviction for Thomas Lynch. And Congratulations on Jack. He looks very cute. Dogs are a treasure. He will love you for a long time.

Dude, uou SO much want to swap those Jets for some Stingers. Ah, to experience the joys of GLUING your tires...:) The 60s are a great depth, but will take a little getting used to in crosswinds. The Jet/Stinger 90s would require some good offseason upper body work. Still, your wheels will slice through the wind as if you were drafting behind Erik D.

Ah, my misread. You did get Stingers...YOU DA MAN! I hope the guys set you up with Vittoria Corsa Evos. Sweet ride!
