First Bike Ride of Spring

  1. Dramatic suspension bridge!
    In the last picture, bikes look about the right size until we see yours, which then looks like a toy. And your towering over others in the group reminds me of the pictures of Lauren amid the Guatamalans (sp?) when she was there in 1979.


  2. In 1913 Igor Stravinsky wrote a controversial orchestral piece titled Sacre du Printemps. This title has been translated as Rite of Spring, which seems to be a near case of anticipatory plagiarism of your title for this week’s posting. Robert Merton, physicist, defines the term: “Anticipatory plagiarism occurs when someone steals your original idea and publishes it a hundred years before you were born.”

    Also, can you provide any ID for that suspension bridge — e.g. name, location, clear span? I’d like to find some data about it for a notion rattling around in my head in the small hours of the night.
