Russ Feingold, the former US Senator from Wisconsin, is taking the campaign finance world by storm. His Progressives United movement is working to tackle “Super PACs” and the corporate influence he feels is bastardizing democracy. This is a critical time for Russ. Continue pushing for change through his organization or go for another opening in the US Senate or the governorship of Wisconsin.
As Feingold so eloquently said in this speech:
What do you think? Do you agree with the outcome of the Citizens United Supreme Court decision that changed the rules regarding corporate campaign expenditures? Do PACs play a necessary role in our political discourse or are they too easily abused?

What a view! But the ride up La Brea was treacherous dodging cars and hipsters. Man does Los Angeles need some urban bike trails! See map of LA and its bike trails. Ouch.
I think we should have a ‘walk / bike grid’ with dedicated trails every mile east to west and north to south. It would take cars off the road and encourage good exercise and green commuting.
What is YOUR city doing to accommodate bikers and provide a more ‘green’ environment for those who want some exercise or just want to go out for some fresh air? Would our representatives even listen to our requests?

Where are all the bike trails?
