Bike Path Blockade

The prez came to town today. And he inconvenienced me. Because I was riding home from work on the lakefront bike path, and the cops shut it down for the sake of presidential security. So my friend and I had to go considerably out of our way to get home.

I'm sure they have their reasons,
like preventing terror and treason,
but sometimes I wish the secret service
wasn't so gosh-darned nervous.

If you happen to be a private pilot and he visits your town, you've also just become a bicyclist.

Stay at the office, friend--our televisions work just fine!

Yes, this giant safety bubble should be confined to DC as much as possible. But money needed to be raised for the Democratic candidates here for governor and senator, who are in tight races.
