Apparently this "good person" is not a very good driver.

"Kirichkov had been convicted of reckless driving in 2005 and again in 2006, and a “number of times” he’s been caught driving with a suspended license, Quinn said. Also, he was found guilty of driving with a license suspended in the first degree in 2010. Since then he’s been considered a habitual traffic offender by the Department of Licensing."

@51: Read the article...
• It was a Ford Ranger, not a "big truck"
• The cyclist was headed in the northeast direction, the truck was headed north. The cyclist was not necessarily "going against a traffic signal".

Still, the driver's a hero to Frizzelle.

@35: Yep. From riding a bike.

Bertha's first victim. I hope there are more (Godden and Murray to name two).

@30: Point taken. What I should have said @21 was, "...It's Frizzelle (the fucking EDITOR-IN-CHIEF of this rag) calling the driver a 'good person' even though he fled the scene after killing someone."

What a "good person" does after hitting a cyclist is stop and call 911. Maybe the cyclist would've survived with immediate medical attention. Maybe not. Doesn't matter.

The driver is scum for fleeing the scene, and anyone who thinks he's a "good person" can kiss my ass.

@26: I've read it four times. What am I missing?

I don't even care about the helmet issue. It's Frizzelle (the fucking EDITOR-IN-CHIEF of this rag) calling the driver a "good person" for fleeing the scene after killing someone.

Wow.

The truck driver fled the scene. He is not a "good person".
Jan 22 DOUG. commented on Central Co-op Grocery Store Raises Entry-Level Wage to $15 Per Hour, Seven Years Ahead of Schedule.
Good for Central Co-op. The anti-Meinert/Friedman voice on Capitol Hill.

@8: Choosing to buy milk at PCC is not just about nutritional value, it's also about factory farming, fair labor standards and buying local (both dairy and grocery).

Also, fuck Whole Foods. They do not belong in the same sentence as PCC and Central Co-op.
