I remember that, during W's occupation of the White House, a Clear Channel DJ was urging people to throw bottles at cyclists as they passed them in their cars.

Because...tiny increments of cleaner air?

A young woman phoned in, giddy that her father had edged the car over to force a cyclist off the road on their way to church. I shit you not. On the way to church. How little self-awareness must one have??? To say nothing of a very, very basic grasp of right and wrong.

This was caused by the same type of right wing believers. So sad that we have people who want to kill just because they don't like how someone looks or what they think they believe.
