|Big Brother is watching|
Someone asked why build bike routes when in the winter that is where all the snow is placed? Judging from the answer, it reminded me of having to ask my father for my allowance and being afraid that he would brush off my request knowing I could do nothing about it. The civic employee reponded to the question of snow removal by saying that they had mentioned it to the big, bureaucratic traffic department and that group shot back with: "It's the perfect place to put the snow!"
As part of the information session, long and detailed black and white photographic maps of the affected streets were displayed in the auditorium. A part of the route I cycle was represented by a map 30 feet long that snaked across most of the room and it was fun to trace my commute along its black and white path.
