There's nothing wrong with the current configuration of the Douglas Bridge so long as cyclists use the correct side.

Dollars to donuts that enraged cyclist was struck by a thrown object. Can't condone the reaction but I sure recognize it.

That's a pretty good guess. I've ridden through some of the worst neighborhoods in DC, and the only people I ever had trouble with were elementary and middle-school aged boys.

A year or two ago I had a gallon milk-jug filled with water swung at my head by a kid who looked like he was a fifth or sixth grader. Not sure what I would've done if he'd connected and I'd remained conscious.

Attacking a kid is never justifiable, but then again, when I was a kid, the idea of attacking an adult was unthinkable. Mostly because we knew that if we did, we assumed we'd get our ass kicked.

Actually, something very similar to this happened once when I was in elementary school and one of my friends threw a snowball at a passing car. Guy got out, chased us, held my friend up against a wall, and told him if he ever caught him doing it again, he'd rip his face off.

Needless to say, it's not something any of us ever did again.

Well, if there's no physical injury to the junior terrorist, I'm with oboe in putting this into the "life lessons" category.

They do grow out of it, but sometimes need manual correction to keep 'em straight.

Clearly a case of of the rarely documented "acute black carbon rage syndrome".
