Wise words on July 4th

"Independence Day was more than a proclamation of autonomy from Britain.... it was an announcement of human rights and liberties: the bicycle is my personal independence from foreign oil, it's my American right to choose how I get to work, how I enjoy my freedom to travel how and where I want; I would hope those driving cars would understand that right, and extend me the courtesy of enjoying it. "

(I wanted to say something profound today, but when I read Keith's statement, I thought it appropriate to share with you all. He said everything I was thinking. You can see Keith's Car-free American profile here!)
