I don’t know what all the fuss is about the world’s leaders coming together to decide the fate of the world at the G8 Summit. I mean just cause OUR leader is a moron with the lowest approval rating ever. They have minor differences such as the severity of global warming and which countries get to put nuclear weapons where and fund genocide in Darfur. But we are all united with rockstars like Bono who make everything ok as long as we focus on poverty in Africa.
I mean when you think of stopping the murder of dark skinned people in the world…George W. Bush and Dr. Condoleezza Rice sure do come to mind.
Check out this article from the Independent on Bono’s whims.
I know…stick to ranting about bike issues. But everyone needs a little riotporn now and then, like when 10,000 demonstrators shut down access to the 33rd annual G8 summit which is being held at the Kempinski Grand Hotel in Heiligendamm in the old Duchy of Mecklenburg in the Northern German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern on the Baltic Coast. Its lovely there this time of year and each room has free HBO and porn channels so George W. Bush can get some relaxation when not doing photo shoots.
Meanwhile…Bike month may be over in NYC and the cops are stealing bikes, but in Sunny Portland Oregon…bike month is just underway.
Yes its… Pedalpalooza
