- As part of the organized Rock Creek Deer Hunt, "roads in the park will be closed between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. over the four nights of the hunt, officials said. They are: Beach Drive north of Broad Branch Road, Ross Drive, Wise Road, Grant Road, Sherrill Drive, Joyce Road, Morrow Drive and Bingham Drive NW." They should bring back wolves - y'know and avoid all the controversy. BTW, I startled a fox during my run along the Anacostia yesterday. That's only the second time that I've seen one in DC.

- I missed this obit until recently "Alex Moulton, a British automotive engineer who created a small-wheeled bicycle that fired a trend in the 1960s and became the forerunner of the collapsible, portable bikes of today, died on Dec. 9 in Bath, England...His idea was to create a more efficient, all-purpose vehicle, suitable for errands and commuting at least as much as for recreation. He wanted it to have substantial carrying capacity, to be maneuverable in traffic, to roll smoothly and to be pedaled easily."
