A couple of weeks ago, I read an article in the Kirkland Reporter, written the day after my accident. In it I expressed disappointment about the way they’d written about the situation – almost as if it were an unavoidable accident. Obviously it was avoidable. I posted about the article and my letter the night I read it. You can read it here :
Imagine my surprise when I got email from my mom this evening, telling me that she’d read the letter in this week’s paper. It’s here :
I’m aware that you can probably count on one hand the total number of people who read the letters to the editor in this local weekly. I expect that a number of readers scratched their heads and wondered why anyone would bother writing a letter about a seven and a half month old article like that. However, I’m happy they printed it, because there’s a chance that someone might be more aware of cyclists when out on the road.
