Althouse blogs about not blogging about bike lights

Postby Neade » Wed Dec 12, 2012 10:28 am

She cares enough to tell us she doesn't care.

Experts can explain how pools of light along a dark path make it harder to see and but easier to be seen. There you are lit up as if on stage to be sized up by the robber or rapist hiding in a dark spot.


Making women feel safe coincided with spending tax money to buy a new amenity that will be noticed and will speak continually — to all who pass through the corridor — saying: Government has improved life for everyone. Experts and owls notwithstanding — those property owners are going to lose.


One of the comments sums up Althouse's point.

Feeling safe trumps being safe for some women.


And Meade reacts how one would expect.

If you want to feel safe while traveling through a "transportation corridor" - especially at night - I suggest providing your own lights, wearing a safety yellow vest, and carrying concealed.


Speaking of how one feels about one's self, another person writes this meaningful comment.

I biked the old transportation corridor known as Old Middleton Road back in the late 70's and early 80's. Certain stretches were mostly unlit at the time when Madison and Middleton had unclear boundaries and thus responsibilities. I did this with the small bike light and never had a problem. In the winter when there was snow, I cross country skied between the train tracks to classes at UW. 7 & 1/2 miles one way. This was back when boys were boys and men were men.


The late 70's! What a delight, that site.

I plan to blog about my pledge to refrain from blogging about Althouse blogging about her not blogging. Anyone else with me on this?

Well, I don't want to be unoriginal, so I'll blog about you blogging about not blogging about what Althouse is blogging about not blogging about.

This is my first entry.

If a blog is blogged on the internet and nobody reads it is it still a blog?

Rather than blather about how dumb someone's blog is, I choose not to read blogs by people whom I find disagreeable. While remaining open to facts that contradict my opinions (Which generally result in altered opinions), I choose not to read or listen to the rantings from people like Ms. Althaus. I save a lot of time, my blood pressure stays low, and I can direct my creative energies to something constructive as opposed to trying to conjure witty replies to idologicial screeds.

I don't think you understand. I never said I read anything. In fact, I have a good mind to blog about not reading it.
