My Good-For-Nothing Opinion Is Worth Something!

No sooner had I posted yesterday about my Rwanda and little bike short rejections when e-word came out to me across the internut from the L.A. Times that an op-ed column they solicited from me a couple weeks ago on the city’s plan or lack thereof for a cohesive bicycling network has been given a go-ahead for publication.

Not only that but there’s money involved (and I’m not talking about the somethin’ somethin’ twenty I paypal’d to my friend on the staff there to help it along).  I’m not sure how much and frankly I don’t care, I’m just pleased as punch at seeing a green light instead of another red. Any cha-ching is just gravy.

As to when it’s scheduled to run, I don’t know that either. Most likely sometime after Susan and I’ve left Saturday so if by chance any a yooz get the paper, happen upon my column and can save it for me then you’ll have my grateful apprecation (all right and a twenty, too!).

Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
