George McGovern passed away this weekend. Besides his notable life achievements that I will not attempt to recount here, he was the very first person I voted for in a Presidential election. As I recall, I think I was the only one in my ROTC detachment to vote for him. Later, for some of the same reasons that I've been tempted to sport a "Don't blame me, I voted for McCain" button, I actually DID have a "Don't blame me, I voted for McGovern" button during the ugly aftermath that led to Nixon resigning in disgrace.
George was one of a class that we are not likely to see again in our lifetimes. Many bicycle posts suggest "tailwinds." Tailwinds mean even more to an aviator.
Subject Matter Mostly it's about local transportation cycling, as it exists in the here and now. It's got a smattering of other gratuitous toy recreation thrown in to keep y'all a little off balance. For those that don't know me, toy recreation means English & Italian cars, aircraft - and downhill skiing.
