So about 200 miles in one stretch,

with a break in the middle, is about all I can handle on a bike; a couple of joints start giving real trouble at that point.  Getting old sucks.

Family problem and a lot of riding Friday-Sunday, which also involved running into someone hadn't seen for several years.

I now return to my usual yelling and bitching with
Remember when colleges actually believed in freedom of speech?
An NYU professor crusading against political correctness and student coddling was booted from the classroom last week after his colleagues complained about his “incivility,” The Post has learned.

Liberal studies prof Michael Rectenwald, 57, said he was forced Wednesday to go on paid leave for the rest of the semester.
'incivility'.  Hmmm.
But Rectenwald says he began getting “dirty looks” in his department and on Wednesday figured out why: A 12-person committee calling itself the Liberal Studies Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Working Group, including two deans,published a letter to the editor in the same paper.

“As long as he airs his views with so little appeal to evidence and civility, we must find him guilty of illogic and incivility in a community that predicates its work in great part on rational thought and the civil exchange of ideas,” they wrote.
Wonder if they complain about that when leftists trash people in the center and right?
Stupid question.

And this crap:
The same day that letter was published, Rectenwald was summoned to a meeting with his department dean and an HR representative, he says.

“They claimed they were worried about me and a couple people had expressed concern about my mental health,” Rectenwald told The Post.
My, how Soviet of them.  At least they didn't have him forcibly committed for improper thought patterns.
