No I'm not embarassed. My bike is the COOLEST! It helps that 50 per cent of cyclists in Toronto have embraced light-weight cruisers over flashy mountain bikes in the last five to ten years. I certainly don't stick out. I got it off Craigslist from a guy that collects vintage bikes and bike parts and rebuilds them as a hobby. His job is restoring vintage cars. He operates out of a fairly sketchy shack off Kipling near the Lakeshore, but he's not sketchy at all, just very, very talkative. He gave me a half-hour run-down on each and every component of my bike (all original apparently), and a bit of his life story.

Hope you don't mind if I link to this list through my blog. Love it.
Love these picks!!!! Great taste, Robyn.
It might come to that, Faulkner. It might come to that. I think I'll just be as vague as possible, that way, I can't help but meet my objectives.

Well said. That central tension between the obligation towards one's constituents and the pressures of the party line is difficult to navigate I'm sure. Perhaps the lack of grass roots support for the Liberal party of late is one of its central problems, and a reason why so many Canadians feel disconnected from it, even if they voted for it in the past. Is it possible that there are a large number of Liberal supporters that simply cannot afford to contribute to the party? I'm not sure of the the demographics in terms of card-carrying members. Something I might try to discover over the day and post later if I can find some numbers.

He is obviously a hip urbanite at heart -- just like his Mom, and, ahem, unlike his Aunty. I'm really just a poseur still...!
