With all the negativity surrounding the bike lanes in NYC, P.J. O’Rourke wrote a satirical piece for the Wall Street Journal. As I glanced it over first thing this morning, I wrote it off as an ignorant piece of editorial journalism meant to ignite some controversy. Then someone pointed out that P.J. O’Rourke is known for satire like this and his writing is only poking fun at the extreme Right who constantly blames cyclists for urban problems.
Very clever. He had me going for a second! See for yourself.
