I've hated that dumb motherfucker for years, at least since he said that all bicyclists should assume they are going to be hit and killed by cars, so bike lanes and helmets are useless. If anyone ever complains about Marion Barry, well, Canada's got a Marion Barry of their own, and he accomplished a lot less in his pre-addiction youth than Barry did.

And I am soo tempted to post a comment that says, "Meh, I saw this on reddit two days ago." Just to fuck with all the redditors who claim Gawker steals everything from them. But I think a lot of people wouldn't know I was being sarcastic, so it would turn into a whole big thing. And you know, I don't like to cause trouble just for the fun of it. But it's tempting.
