    I've flipped off every motorcade that has gotten in my way. Why hasn't the Post written an article about me?

    Yeah, motorcades are the worst. It's not partisan.

    There's something about the photo in this article that I really love. I can't quite tell if it's the bike alone on a road with a bunch of cars, the somewhat casual way the cyclist is dressed, or the way her white shirt stands out against the black cars and dark scene while she's flipping the bird. Whatever it is, the photo is just perfect.

    Wait, it's all a misunderstanding. She's flipping off the black SUVs with MD War of 1812 tags: the obligation of every VA cyclist.

    I describe such women as having huge "euphemisticals".

    I’m just glad the article mentioned that she was wearing a helmet. I mean, we wouldn’t take her seriously at all otherwise.

    Pretty sure that was a take off on "not all heroes wear capes"

    Though after Saturday, I can say that quite a few cyclists wear capes.

    Should we expect the stretch of Pennsylvania Ave in front of the White House to see increasingly frequent closures to cyclists as a result?

    Agree with Emm that this is a great photo! The slight underexposure, the tilt to the camera, the white shirt against a sea of black SUVs. It's wonderful!
