=v= Critical Mass is traffic.  If I show up in traffic in a car
with bumper stickers, I'm "introducing my own political agenda."
If I shop up at Critical Mass with bumper stickers (or signs or
flags or flyers with ecological messages), it's no different.

=v= No doubt there's some confusion caused by calling the
Thursday morning ride "Critical Mass," but I don't see why that
should drive anyone away from the Friday night Critical Mass.
No Nukes! Close Seabrook! Stop Critical Mass!
