sh*t and, even if you do ride a bike, you're a sidewalker. so, the
question: do you ride a bike? is this "enterprise story" regarding
*cough* "bike reform" something you even remotely give two shits about or
did you just happen to think it would be the idea that gives you an edge
over the average BU student's absolute BS? if you want some input.. if you
REALLY give a shit.. you'll get on a bike and actually see what the rest of
us have to deal with on a daily basis. politics have borderline nothing to
do with the choices you make on the road. you do what you need to do to
survive when you're thrown in to situations that require it.

reform movement in Boston - this has mostly to do with Menino electing
Nicole Freedman, what her life has been about, and how this creates a
conversation with existing movements around the city. As you've probably
already guessed, I would love to have your input on this. I already talked
to Adam, who was listed on the site as the leader but he told me I might
strike more gold speaking with any of you.

If you can get back to me at all by then, it would be much appreciated.
