    The Immortal Class: Bike Messengers and the Cult of Human Power Travis Hugh Culley.

    I ordered this from the library on a whim, while looking for other cycling books. This is a
    pretty cool memoir from a young guy ( starving artist gen x type) who did messengering in Chicago
    and Philly.

    I'm about 1/2 way through. Good commentary on issues like Critical Mass and cycle awareness, and
    lots of good stuff about the art and rhythm of the flow of a busy big city. Plus, urban cycling
    madness...

    penny,

    My County library's catalog is on the web so I can browse the entire catalog from home and
    reserve any book and have it delivered to my local branch for pickup, way cool. I'll have to see
    if they have this book.

    hmmmm?

    Bill(scratching my head)Wheeler The mind serves properly as a window glass rather than as a
    reflector, that is, the mind should give an immediate view instead of an interpretation of
    the world.
