Congratulations to the cyclists and skaters (and walkers and runners and more) of the Bay Area for winning a six month trial period of car-free Saturdays in Golden Gate Park.

I'm sitting here hoping and praying that higher gas prices are what finally gets this country out from behind the wheel, and into using human-powered means of transportation, or horses again, or anything other than gasoline.
