NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 04: A cyclist rides in Central Park on April 4, 2011 in New York City. Central Park, long a center point to Manhattan`s burgeoning cycling community, has become ground zero of a battle between the New York Police Department (NYPD) and riders as the police have begun issuing tickets to cyclists for both speeding and not stopping at traffic lights. The NYPD has issued 230 tickets to cyclists for over $200 between Jan. 1 and March 15 of this year. The riders are beginning to fight back with a Facebook group and appeals to New York`s Mayor Michael Bloomberg to set traffic lights to “blinking yellow” during off-peak hours.

The Daily News hit Central Park the other day, and in short time found numerous cyclists whizzing by in excess of the 25-mile-per-hour speed limit. Zooming through a red light is certainly a different story. But with respect to speeding in the park, outgoing Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe does not appear so concerned.“If you find a few people going over the speed limit, it’s not a huge problem,” he said. “The cyclists themselves have to be good citizens. To be going 25, 30 [mph] downhill is not that unusual.” In other words, riders, govern yourselvesaccordingly.
Thom Tillis’ message at the (virtual) NCGOP convention: “The stakes are very high this election, but you know why I know we’re going to win? Because people remember how good their lives were back in February.”
So hard to watch @FoxNews anymore. They are working so hard against the people (viewers) that got them there. Their contributors are a disaster, and all over the place. The Radical Left has scared Fox into submission, just like they have so many others. Sad, but we will WIN!
The N.F.L. team in Washington plans to announce Monday that it will drop Redskins from its name, according to a person with direct knowledge of the decision, yielding to sponsors and Native American activists who have long criticized it a racist slur.
The person who confirmed the decision spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had yet to make the official announcement. The anticipated move was first reported by Sports Business Journal on Sunday and followed by other news organizations.
The team, one of the oldest in the N.F.L., was not expected to announce a new name on Monday as it continues to evaluate possibilities.
