The loop around city hall is really scary. I bike it everyday on my way to work and vascilate between terror and surprise that such a high-profile area would be so poorly designed.

it is depressing how little followup the news media does about stories like this. like, who was this poor fellow, where was he coming from, where was he going, had he been drinking, etc. etc. it is as though he wasn't a real person.
