It's interesting to observe the conflict between liberal nanny statism and the liberal impulse to do anything to increase bike usage.


Usually in such conflicts liberals wind up sacrificing personal safety.


As an example, the liberal nanny state has gone to great lengths to remove mercury from homes. Until the compact florescent light came along, which contains mercury in a package that is easily broken.

Now, of course, many liberal nanny state programs MANDATE the use of compact florescent or other energy saving lights because it supports other liberal policy goals.


Incidentally, I saw this article in the NYT on line and hustled over here to post the article, only to discover others had already done that!
