*Note: This morning before 0800hrs when I rolled up on the square, I saw Mikey's former mustachioed boss chilling on a bench with a blue bag. I never saw a bicycle but I did hear the whisper of the Blue Moon Blues.
I made the present header and this spinning shutter image of Mikey on the Square early last month.
A week ago today recognized Charlotte Cyclist ArsBars was hit at an intersection in the South End is Near while on one of her many cycling commutes home. Apparently she is okay and at this time the Traffic Stop knows little about the condition of her fly bicycle or the car that ran into her for that matter. I took the initiative earlier this week to go down to the police station where I have become as familiar as Team Dicky on the Internet to request a copy of the police report so I could try to piece together the events that led to Charlotte's latest bike v. car collision. Interestingly enough when I asked the mustached officer for the complaint number attached to the bicycle/car incident in the South End last Friday without mentioning her name, he immediately questioned me, "You mean the one involving Ms. Jenkins?" How quizzical, he knew her name instantly and then started being evasive about giving me the numbers that I not only needed, but that are public record. At any rate, I finally convinced him to give me the numbers so he wrote them down on a sticky and handed them to me after disappearing into the bowels of the uptoon satellite police station for twelve long minutes. The plot thickens when I roll down to the main office only to find out the reports do not exist, even with a name search. Maybe soon when this conspiracy is unveiled, we who ride in this town will benefit from the knowledge gained in understanding the facts of the incident.
