YES ! 
"So I'm giving 'em what they want and putting it on the blog."

That strikes me as the most genuinely nice thing said by a Slog writer. Very cool Dom.

Bicycles + Last Friday of the month + Westlake Park = Critical Mass

Just Seattle's brand of uppity little wannabe anarchist latching on to an event that has been happening for years.

Kind of a cute poster. It looks like a woodblock print.

@7, thank you! It has verve:
Come join in solidarity as Seattle joins Bike Swarm International for a night of bicycle riding / wheelies / brakies / cop blocking and urban blockade~ starting at the heart of capital~ the peak of oil ~ the arteries of commerce and exploding in the bedroom communities of the wealthy ! who deliberately ride on our backs wont peddle or let us steer ! NE!L~

September 28th, 2012: I'll be 65 and still a slog reader. But thanks for doing something special for my birthday, whatever it might turn out to be....

If this person wants to be effective he'll drop "cop blocking" from the agenda. Otherwise, he'll gather just another bunch of unruly brats.

No cops showed up  ACAB ! FTP!

@7) Good work, I searched to no avail. The Force is very strong with you.

Is that like a linocut or something? It's kinda pretty. 
Wood block print !

Critical Mass -- setting back the rights of cyclists since 1992.
Posted by Fnarf http://www.facebook.com/fnarf on September 18, 2012 at 4:49 PM
The only rights we have are~ taken on the streets !!! Unpave the streets !
this is going to be a clusterfuck of a commute. Others will be protesting ryder end of the ride ride free area same time, same place.
Posted by pussnboots on September 18, 2012 at 5:09 PM
the protesters never touched your precious commute~ they stayed on the sidewalks and we took the sidewalks with them  
 Sorry. Swyping on the bus.
Posted by pussnboots on September 18, 2012 at 6:23 PM

The search parameters were "Super Swarm Seattle September 28 2012". That was the first item on the results page.

Gonna be a group of people made up of the kind of folks who swooped out of nowhere in front of my car on 2nd ave ext on a tandem bike while I had a green light, west bound on Jackson last month. I narrowly avoided them & slammed on my brakes. Thankfully, the car behind me was able to stop before hitting me. But, yeah moral superiority and all on your bike. Congrats.

My personal anecdote cancels yours out:

A couple weeks ago, I was cruising down Cayuse Pass on my touring bike, going about 35 or 40, when a giant pickup hauling a twenty-five foot trailer passed me by crossing the double yellow and coming about three seconds from either a head-on collision with a line of cars or crushing me. Of course he honked and gave me the finger while he single-handedly risked the lives of at least 10 people in an effort to save a minute or two of total trip time.

That sad, the kind of people who ride around pissing people off as a political statement really annoy me. Critical Mass is fun, though.

Looks like Critical Mass wants to be extra annoying this month.

Oh heck yes, your story about an interaction on a rural highway serving a Mt. Rainier recreation area (and nothing much else) totally cancels out a story about an interaction on city streets with active, present pedestrians and buildings with people in them at street level and traffic density way (way!) above a rural highway and stuff like that.

But yeah, the only bad cyclists are the ones making those disagreeable "political statments," right?

The rest of them are blameless, clearly.

Didn't your mother ever tell you not to play in traffic? Seriously. From one cyclist to another(or many), be creative. Traffic is so close to destroying itself as it is. It should be quite simple to destroy the system and open the country's pathetic infrastructure to your superior mode of transport without anyone even noticing your input. Your output can speak so much louder. Destroy quietly, build proudly. 
you mean do nothing ever forever !

At first look I thought this might be yet another pointless zombie convergence.

On second thought, I guess it is yet another pointless zombie convergence, in its own sorry way.

right ! and your not watching a movie or eating in a restaurant or texting your friends ~ you are celebrating total freedom !  creative enlightenment and spiritual cleansing  ~ thank you !
