The Rules of the Road

It can be hard to figure out what the hell you should be doing out there in the vast wilderness of traffic. People get angry about pretty much every behavior.

Acme Comedy Club Threatens to Leave Minneapolis Over Parking

When people drive to the iconic comedy venue, Acme Comedy Co., in the North Loop they have the option to park in one of two surface parking lots across the street.

How Language Choices Blame the Victim

I was in a fury last week after learning that someone killed a Minneapolis child with their car on Halloween. First, I was angry that this happened at all.

It’s inevitable. Every local news article that mentions biking, no matter how fluffy or non-controversial the article, will incite hordes of angry commenters to bring up the same tired, disproven arguments over and over again. It’s time we put those to rest. Cyclists don’t obey the rules of the road. This is probably the most frequent […]

Lessons on Biking from Barcelona

For a few days earlier this week, I was in Barcelona. While many people travel to other places and want to explore cultural things like museums and architecture, I like to get a feel for the city by bike.
