    The Bike to Work Day celebration in Providence was a fine event that helps call attention to this relatively healthy, inexpensive, non-polluting, and fun way to travel.  The Mayor (who last year announced the formation of a bike/pedestrian Advisory Committee) this time announced 3 “cyclovia” events (where short stretches of streets are closed to thru traffic for a few hours and the street can be taken over by bicyclists and pedestrians  – other cities have seen locl businesses enefit as a result) – on Broad St again, but this year also on Valley St and Hope St.   Mayor Tavares is helping us (slowly) progress on making biking more part of the RI culture which will also be strengthened when the  bike/pedestrian bridge on the old I-195 piers is constructed and a off-road path along a Bay Commission right of way is built as an alternative to part of the Gano St route.

    So that’s the guy on a bike in a suit I saw having a conversation with someone down my street. I noted the odd scene but I didn’t recognize him and would have ignored him anyway because I don’t like to bother people. God for him. He’s becoming like Cianci, popping up everywhere. Wouldn’t it be great if he biked around along with Cianci?

    Taveras is a swell guy for the bondholder set.
    Buddy was far more creative, capable, and resourceful. (I know. I know.)
    Doubt that Angel will stray too far afield in that particular way.
    But any public school teacher who sees Angel Taveras as a progressive has no respect for her or his job or for their profession as public servants.
    Is memory that fleeting?
    Plain, simple, and true.
