Stolen Cannondale Unknown

Thursday, June 28th, 2007

So, if anyone sees someone on a dark blue/shimmer cannondale frame with a silver glitter deteriform (I dont know, its a local band, I’m not from here) sticker on the top tube, right side, it’s stolen. The handle bars are drop and wrapped with bicycle inner tubes and turns the thiefs palms black. Ghetto single speed, only one back brake. A friend let me borrow the bike while I’m in town and it fucking SUCKS that it is stolen (ya know, it becomes my fault.)

Stolen from the backyard of 33 NE Cook Ave during a show. Also stolen with a LOCKED bike and a shitty, brakeless, orange raleigh. Who the fuck would want these junkers? Don’t fucking know.

Vehicular homicide bill introduction more strategy than substance

Thursday, June 28th, 2007

I was surprised last week when Senator Floyd Prozanski introduced a vehicular homicide bill (SB 1058) with just a week left in the session. Knowing how long it takes to push a bill through the system, it was obvious the bill had no chance of passing.

So what was the point? I wondered the same thing. Luckily, this site is read by some very smart people. One of them is regular commenter (and lawyer) Cecil. She had this to say about Prozanski’s strategy:
