As Tom has now chosen to add to his attacks with lying, I've taken this
off list to deal with him personally.  If anyone wants to hear about it,
which I doubt, I'll pass it along.

Not true.  Bikes on the T, State Bike Plan, Minuteman Bikepath, other
achievements already cited.

Not me, didn't do it, and as stated, never remember meeting you, despite
your claims at having a "striking" appearance.

Ad hominem attacks (two).  5'10".  Not short, doesn't loathe anyone for
their physical appearance.  Two-term limit meant my retirement from the
MassBike Board this past December.  Am now on the Advisory Committee,
where old Board members are put out to ... pasture?  (Rust?  Stud?)
Have used my time to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis society's
Great Mass Getaway.  Want to donate?

>cited hasn't in fact yet been implemented.

More nonsense.  Statement was, "We successfully lobbied the
Massachusetts Municipal Police Training Committee, who develop police
training curricula for both state and local police, to include this
training, and they agreed in June, 2005.  Though the results won't be
immediate, as more police are trained in what the law actually says
about bicycle operation, relations between bicyclists and police should
improve over time."  True statement.

Ad hominem attack.  Ignored.

She's gone, guess you weren't paying attention.  We are sorry, but we
are also happy to have David Watson, who's been doing a bang-up job
himself for a couple months now.
