Daniel G replied to April's discussion Accident story to convince my nephew to wear helmet

"No. Absolutely not, not ever. Demanding parts of a whole to be able to exist independently from one another is something you'd do for only one reason: political agenda. The roots can't take care of themselves (for very long). Do the…"

Daniel G replied to Skip Montanaro 12mi's discussion Barclays to End Sponsorship of London Bike Share
