"Rush Hour 3" review

Hey, Jackie, let Chris have top billing for "Rush Hour 3." Really -- be generous. Let Chris take all the credit for this one.

Bike lane narrowed -- again

Time for gnashing of teeth. The bike lane I take home has been narrowed again.

The original stripe (highlighted in green) was rather close to the curb, but I realise that the street is too narrow to support a real bike lane plus two lanes for cars.

Then, last year or maybe it was two years ago, the stripe was repainted (shown in blue) and it moved in maybe a sixth of the way to the curb. Quite a squeeze.

And now this year (the fresh white paint) it has nibbled away a little more. Not as outrageous as the last striping, but working its way to zeroing out the bike lane at this is one intersection.

Grandson and grandpa?

Is the "Cow and Boy" kid related to Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame?

Dots for eyes? Check. Hard to tell where the hair starts and ends? Check. High contrast? Check.

But the drawing styles are completely different.

The jury is out.
