I'm thinking we need a "sarcasm" smiley... :)

It's not that people are dumber, it's that stupidity used to be more painful.

Hmm, I didn't think Paul was being sarcastic.  Ironic, perhaps but sarcastic?  No.

Now Steve, on the other hand, HE was being sarcastic.  Watch it, bub.  ;)

Not sure what an "irony" smiley would be....

Irony? Sarcasm? I'm not sure which. Might be neither.

It's nice that cops acted in so restrained a manner, compared to their usual savagery. It's nice that Portland bigwigs tolerate a World Naked Bike Ride (a ride I would like to watch some day). And it is really nice that Portlanders are so enthused about the ride that it attracts 8000 participants.

Tried to get a mental image of naked bike riders, but I can't quite manage it... just thinking about all that potential road rash makes my nurse nerves go to full alert. Couldn't actually stand to watch it myself, but to each his/her own. :)

LOL! No, I certainly would not. I can't even ride a bicycle to start with. :)
