Good afternoon. A co-worker pointed out today that the original Star Wars Trilogy is basically unchanged if Leia and Luke aren't siblings. Sure, maybe it explains why Luke looses it during the last light-saber fight, but you could've gotten there without it (as Family Guy so eloquently pointed out). And it doesn't matter in the second trilogy either. So why do it? Anyway the speed bike chase is still pretty cool.

- The new plan for the McMillan sand filtration site includes "a hiker-biker trail along North Capitol for the length of the site, several new sidewalks, and two Capital Bikeshare stations on the site—one near the grocery store and one in the middle of the mixed-use medical office/retail complex."
- Bicycle as paintbrush.
- 'For [3-feet passing] laws to work, cities must incorporate two key components - education and enforcement. Without those things, "the [three-foot] law is just something written on a piece of paper," says Mike Samuelson of the Alliance for Biking & Walking.'
