Good morning! I was in Savannah this past weekend, but I spent my time surrounded by Girl Scouts, and stayed on the side of the river that was pure and good.

So we now have a fatality to go with 80-100 Grady trips alone per month. Bird publishes a study stating that it doesn’t happen as much in cities with bike lanes but that didn’t keep them from distributing them all over a city that has never been very bike friendly. What’s wrong with this picture?

The industry will have to solve its problems. Too many localities are simply banning them from the streets for the industry to ignore this situation. I can’t figure out why they would adopt a business model that ensures the injury or death of a large percentage of their customers.

What is Abrams’ end game? She’ll never be more popular from an electoral point of view than now. She is the only Democrat that can possibly beat Perdue in two years. But she’s opting out. Why?

She doesn’t want to be in the Senate. It has become a place where good things go to die.

Who knows? As Gregs suggests, maybe the idea of sitting in the Senate is off-putting. Maybe she doesn’t think she could beat Perdue. Maybe she wants another whack at Kemp. Maybe she prefers to be king or queen maker.

I remember reading an interview where Mark Dayton described how much he hated his time in the Senate and how he felt incapable of actually accomplishing anything because of 1) lack of seniority and 2) the generally laconic pace of the Senate.

Governors actually do things. Senators just talk about them.
