    mia birk waxes on about the wonders of portland bicycle planning. please make me barf. i like visiting portland, but it is white as wonder bread, and getting bleached more all the time. sure, it’s got good bicycling, but it’s got crazy homogeneity too. who wants that? if SF ever went that way, i’d move….oh that’s right. i moved out because of exactly that. maybe this book is perfect for SF too. she’s a nice person, but the text only facilitates the joyride of her self-absorption. the world really doesn’t need anymore of that.
