The last time my home town was in the news it was due to a religious war. Now it's all about bike racks at the schools. Except the news is actually 2 years old. I just stumbled across it today.

I used to ride my bike to school every warm day in 8th and 9th grade. I'm excited that some parents in Wauconda actually fought for their kids' right to ride to school. It actually surprises me that they would.

Wow. Complete and total idiocy. I'm surprised it lasted a week. Weather permitting, I biked to school from second through eighth grade. Our racks were always full.

On the flip side, I was bewildered by the story in our local paper here that for National Bike To Work Day, local parents had organized a kids' ride from a local park to the nearby elementary and junior high. They needed to be pushed out to do this? Have parents become that indulgent?
