Your first thought here is obviously: Who in fuck is Paul Kane? Basically he’s a Washington DC political reporter, a guy who covers the kind of insider capital hill political football that induces vomiting in most Americans.
And Paul Kane very obviously does not ride a bike, at least not for anything besides recreation in the summer.
I know this because nobody who relies on bicycles to commute for work, for groceries, or for hauling their kids around town would say something as ignorant, tone-deaf, and downright dangerous as what Paul Kane tweeted this week.
DC bicyclists: on dark rainy nights no one can see you. You’re endangering your life. Blame Henry Ford if you want but don’t blame drivers.
