Sorry about the lengthy hiatus from providing fresh material. I’ve sort of recovered from a calamitous laptop failure, but now my computer fails to get online anywhere but the UNC campus. Doh!
I have quite a backlog of material, including musings about Edward Hoppers’s and Ernest Hemingway’s obsession with track cycling; The Clash’s head roadie’s book about the 2005 Tour de France; Giovanni Lombardi: suave, classy, and an iron man; up-close with a pissed off swarm of yellowjackets; local road graffiti; and my take on the new-found adulation I’m encountering (while cycling) from construction crews and contractors.
