Now for new information on things that is widen the wing span for The Phoenix.

I got one book I am starting to work on called “The Jesus Papers: Exposing the Greatest Cover-up in the History” By Michael Baigent. I like reading things like this because it kind of puts a new point view on things. After all there are more sides to a story than just one point of view and when not expose your self to it and develop your own opinion on it.

The other book I am going to get is called American Gospel: God, the Founding Fathers, and the Making of a Nation by Jon Meacham. After watching the interview with him and Colbert last night I was impressed and amused to read this book.

Now on to other things, last night I called redwing and we were talking and decided to watch TV together with Oberon Magus. A lot of interesting topics came up and we started to debate a lot of things. Now today I have been thinking after I get married and find a new job is I should see about buying a motor scooter for local in town driving and use the car long commuting so I can cut down on the usage of gas and miles. Maybe in this effort I can also attempt to help the pollution issues in the USA. *shrugs* need to do more home work on it.

Well... it IS dangerous. Which is why we don't have one.

But there will be other options soon too, cars that get as good or almost as good gas mileage as motorcycles, and etc. :)

Oh I agree, it's safer than a lot of things, and a scooter for local travel is probably very relatively safe, though impossible to be safter than being inside a reinforced vehicle with airbags.

I still want a Ninja. But even I can't argue that even if all I do is go up and down our street, I'd be safer inside my VUE. (I've tried!)

Yes, I wish you could have heard his comment last night. He said he rather get a bike since they are safer and I told him that was the worst rebuttle he could have made.

Actually, for women especially, I'd think bikes are less safe? I'm not sure, this is probably a source for jperegrine, he's got all the safety info... But the lighter a bike is, the better chance you have of getting it OFF you if you fall.

However, I think bikes are ....... "dartier"? More maneuverable. Which means you can get out of the way of things faster.

Either way, though, it's pretty much the gear you're wearing rather than the bike you're riding that makes you safest :)
