A p3 tip of the Bell Ghisallo helmet to DC cyclist David Bono for facing down evil incarnate. (Follow the link; you'll love the part where Novak claims he was listening to NPR when the incident occurred. That should have tipped the police off right there that he was desperately covering his ass.)
Here in the Portland area, of course, we are already quite familiar with the concept of bicyclists stopping traffic in the name of fair play, however well-thought through the attempt, as well as cycling-related incidents involving a victim sprawled across the hood and windshield of a car speeding away from the scene. But it's good to see the practice of cyclists meting out justice spreading to Washington DC, where there's so much work to be done and so little time. (Even as you read this, somewhere in DC Dick Cheney could be getting behind the wheel.)
This is the first time, and perhaps the last, that I've posted a story that had both "cycling" and "right-wing media" as topic tags. Funny old world.
