"The Sunday Wisconsin State Journal has an article about the significant increase in hand guns in Madison. I spent a good part of the ride mulling over what it will take to convince city leaders that crime and poverty are of major proportions."

Unfortunately, the above two sentences are rather ambiguous, and there was no link. (Just as I forgot to link to you when I posted.) No excuse, I should've checked the story myself to see to what phenomena what you were referring.

It's an interesting example of biases, really. In my view, the above sentences invokes the idea of a helpless citizenry arming themselves for self protection. On Planet Madison, the opposite.

So if they try to steal your bicycle, do you have mace?

(I'll try to note that I've been correctly and sufficiently zinged later on my blog.)
