West Coast Troubles...
In San Francisco, there were a couple of incidents with angy bikers

Critical Mass pedals politely through S.F.
A SMOOTH RIDE: After last month's heated confrontation between bicyclists and a driver, participants were determined to make this month's event a more pleasant experience
Then check out this bizarre ride from Berkely's Critical Mass which was last Friday (I guess its the 2nd Friday of every Month)
Video of ride.
The driver of the minivan claims people threw bikes under his van...kind of like when demonstrators damage police equipment with their heads at demonstrations. The driver, a 70 year old man wants to negotiate better about how the pedestrians, bikers and motor vehicles can share the road. I wonder how those negotiations would go..."you bikers talk about your problems...while I run you over."
The video is really disturbing and you end up feeling bad for everyone...but the driver kind of looks like Dick Chenney and he is behind a machine that can kill people...maybe he should negotiate like our Vice President and tell people to go Fuck themselves.
Here is an article about the incident.
