Princess Amanda, I’m so glad that my warped sense of humor brings pleasure to your royal dominion. Please be advised that, for the next week or so, I shall be “off the air” as I bike the hinterlands of the Carolinas where internet service is spotty at best. However, as General Douglas MacArthur said, “I shall return.”
There’s been a crime wave in my hometown recently. Someone has been stealing the wheels from cars and trucks parked in our downtown. It’s gotten worse. Now they are stealing the wheels off of bicycles!

Is Riverdale being run by a bunch of jugheads? (Oops! Sorry, wrong thread.)
But seriously, LOCAL petition signers would carry a great deal of weight with LOCAL officials, but I fear that a bunch of out-of-towners/staters would carry little pursuasive weight. We’d be viewed as carpet-baggers, meddlers or worse.
Every time Mrs Woo rode her bicycle out of the barn on our farm, she’d lose her balance and fall over. This happened on multiple occasions and under all conditions. She got so frustrated that she finally gave up riding — — a bicycle, that is. She took up horseback riding instead. It was more stable. 🤪 (rim shot)
