The bike racks are coming, the bike racks are coming!

New York City is getting a bike share program, and that means bike racks. Many neighborhoods, including mine, are up in arms. I say: Get over yourselves! You don’t want to walk out the door and see that row of racks because it’s ugly? Really, cars are better? Because that’s what’s there now. How will ambulances and fire trucks stop in front of buildings? They’ll double-park the way they do now, because there are cars there now. All those bikes being unlocked in the morning will be noisy? Really, noisier than the cars pulling in and out now?

I comfort myself with the knowledge that almost no one in Paris welcomed the Eiffel Tower, either.
