Bike and Crime Month continues

child-grant-1-190A sharp-eyed Mercantile Library member in Los Angeles caught this NYT piece about Lee Child (on the left) and his younger brother (on the right) who is entering the crime novel business.  Four full time librarians and their families managed not to see this important piece when it came out, but the damage has been corrected.  One family member has already weighed in on her sadness over learning that Lee Child is a norm de plume.  We also feel a bit used, but it shouldn’t affect our need to read the new one.

We have not yet figured out where we will wear the 50% polyester ONE LESS CAR tee shirt we scored at the morning snack-for-cyclists event on Fountain Square yesterday, the violently stormy Bike To Work day.  The shirt is violently yellow, so if we wear it to Findlay Market it will draw unwanted attention to ourself, and if we wear it on a bicycle, we are afraid it will make us something of a target which we already are perilously close to being.  The sun came out for the lunchtime Fountain Square festivities.  We were happy to note the presence of Roxanne Qualls, Jeff Berding, Chris Bortz, and David Pepper and sad to note the absence of …..  well, other prominent elected officials   We also enjoyed the free grub from Melt via Park+Vine as did other bikers and street people.  This morning we went out of our way through Covington to look as though we normally took the Purple People Bridge to work so that we could score some of Bike Newport’s swell breakfast at the south end of the bridge.  V. tasty.
