Obviously many commenters didn't read this article completely. The author also covers the scenario where you *do* own a car but keep it for more than 5 years by mixing in some biking. You still come out ahead financially.

It's funny how many people are so thin-skinned as to be intimidated by a commuter on a bicycle with an interesting financial analysis.

A large number of political cartoonists and satirists have recently been focusing on the mental illness aspect of William's life and death.

In SB, I pick up KCRW best on their Ventura translator 89.1. But in Goleta 106.9 comes in better.

KCRW also streams on the internet @ and has a number of mobile apps.
