Double Parking in the Bank St. Bike Lane

I'm getting really sick of hearing about bike share and bike lanes and bike helmets and bike locks and bike seats and bike videos from The Netherlands.  Why?  Because most of the people doing all this talking don't ride bicycles much at all.  

People who really bike -- who have been biking continuously since they were kids -- don't wait around for other people to tell them where to ride and what to ride and how to ride it.  But the new crop of people who started biking in the past few years seem to spend most of their time making excuses for not riding and poo-pooing real bikers.  
Anyway, check out this hot double-parking action on Bank St. the other night:

WCPO publishes Osborne - Qualls interview one day before Osborne is named Cranley's spokesman!

Kevin Osborne used to write some of the best criticism of the COAST/Smitherman crowd for Citybeat.  Now he's one of them.

What a coincidence -- published this fluff interview of Qualls just 24 hours before Osborne was named Cranley's spokesman.  What a dick!

Nirvana never played Sudsy's. They played at "Shorty's", a defunct Short Vine club.

There are persistent urban legends surrounding where and when Nirvana played in Cincinnati.  Contrary to popular belief, they NEVER played Bogart's and they NEVER played Sudsy's.  They did play Murphy's Pub in 1989 (still there on W. Clifton) and twice within three weeks at "Shorty's Underground", a club in the building that now houses the CD/Game Exchange at the corner of Corry and Short Vine.  

According to this website, Nirvana played Cincinnati on these dates:

10/6/89 Murphy's Pub
4/14/90 Shorty's
5/10/90 Shorty's 

Nirvana was also scheduled to play a defunct Newport bar called the "Top Hat" on 7/18/89 but cancelled.  They were also scheduled to headline Lallapalooza's 7/20/94 stop at Riverbend but unfortunately the band no longer existed.
