Re: “Free to a Good Home: the Greek Cusina Octopus!

Maybe Denis doesn't use CL much: there is a "Reply" button in the upper left of the ad, which provides a CL email address that forwards to the poster's email address. It is an anti-spam feature (to avoid revealing the poster's email address to the whole world).

Brian Allan Cobb: if you make your living by driving, then you should know more than anyone about how to legally enter a crosswalk. You should also know that there are circumstances when a cyclist may legally pass on the right. Suggestion: leave the truck parked until you can make your way to the Oregon Revised Statutes (Google it) and learn how to drive.

Re: “Hanford Rally Q & A

Earth Day is actually April 22nd:

I'm sure that what Miriam had meant by "April 15 is the day before Earth Day" is that April 16th is the first day of Earth Week:…

frankieb, you do sound like a dick. Miriam didn't claim in this article to be an expert on anything, that is just something you made up. A person does not need any special degree to organize a rally and to network people who know a lot about an issue with those who want to know about the issue.

Re: “Saltzman: Maybe Put Sunday Parkways on "Hiatus"

Safety awareness gives more safety bang-for-the-buck than physical infrastructure. Several of the cyclists who were hit and killed in the last 5 years were riding 100% legally in bike lanes. I know for certain that some families have become more bike-and-foot transportation oriented after experiencing Sunday Parkways.

Re: “Great Job Portland Marathoners!

Actually, NOT exercising is selfish. Without enough exercise, you will have bad health. If you have bad health and you have an insurance policy, others sharing your policy will have to pay more to get you fixed up. If you don't have health insurance, then probably you can't afford to get yourself fixed up and so the public helps pay the cost or the hospitals eat it and then pass the cost on to insurance companies which pass it on to policyholders. So, thanks for being a slob so that I can pay later for you.

Re: “Update on Last Night's Bike/Car Crash: 23-Year-Old Died

OK, the cyclists weren't using lights apparently but did they have rear reflectors? In Oregon, a front white light and red rear light OR reflector is the minimum requirement. While riding w/out a white light on front is technically violating the law, for a collision from the rear it would be whether or not there were reflectors which would be a factor in driver responsibility for the crash.

If you are driving a car at night and don't see those bright red reflectors in the headlight beams, it means that either (1) you are going way too fast, or (2) your vision or attention to the road is so poor that you should not be driving in the first place.

Re: “The End is Nigh... Which Means "Saturday," Guys!

History repeats itself:…

"At first, the group struggled for an explanation. But then rationalization set in. A new message arrived, announcing that they'd all been spared at the last minute."
