Newspapers have gone the way of deviled eggs--you see them on grandma's table, but rarely anywhere else. The NY Times is in big trouble, laying off staff and asking the remaining workers to take pay cuts. This is bad news for democracy and bad news for those of us who enjoy something more than the recyled junk that is blog-lit (for example, bikerackheads).
So it is with great pleasure I announce the addition of my brother, under the nome de plume, "qualia," to the bikerackhead staff.
The addition of qualia to our staff brings many benefits, but is nonetheless bittersweet. Since qualia made up a large portion of our readership, his addition to the organization cuts our followers in half.
We are the Astana of local cycling blogs with readership of fewer than five persons: all road generals and no domestiques.
My brother's a good rider and smart guy (he has a Phd in a totally useless field), whose thoughts you (all three of you) will certainly appreciate. That is, if the swine flu doesn't kill us all.
As Click and Clack say: remember, don't ride like my brother.
