Super or Not 

Pin It

It seems the Legislature agrees with John Saltas about those red-light running, clove-smoking, latte-sipping, menace-tosociety jackass bicyclists [“Future Dead People,” Private Eye, Jan. 28, City Weekly]— as do I. But you know what they say: There are old bicyclists and bold bicyclists, but there aren’t any old bold bicyclists.

Was the perp wearing the skin-tight suit and plastic helmet? (I get a chuckle when seeing them in their Lance Armstrongwannabe outfits.)

As for Saltas not having superhero powers—or having superhero powers, depending on whether or not one catches his slip-up in a later paragraph—most who read his column regularly might disagree/agree.

I’m guessing he is just being modest, and a bit contradictory, since most times he casually disguises his superhero power. I find his column the most enjoyable reading when he has a colorful burr under his saddle.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
