Bike to Work Day: Shreveport not made for European or alternative style or, particularly, for discussing alternatives to the status quo
But with gas at $3 a gallon, isn't it time Shreveport began to have a widespread conversation about conservation?
Biking isn't going to be the answer for most people. But it is symbolic of alternatives.
Shreveportitis is part of our town's character. It's about accepting our fate. It's, like, let someone else think this out. It's knowing that we don't have to worry about leadership or alternatives or demonstrating insight.
Still, given the brainpower and affluence of East Shreveport, at least, shouldn't there be a more apparent sense of save-the-planet consciousness?
