Can we quit throwing around the word hero? I just saw a sign saying “bicyclists are heros!” Yeah. Thanks for not using a car and all, but hero? Hey grandpa? Remember when you saved that woman when the building collapsed on her? Well we’re both heros now!

And around here, are people really all riding bikes because they care so much about the environment? Because I’m pretty sure a few are saving money on a bus card or just trying to avoid sitting in traffic.

I recycled some cans last week. Where’s my comic book? Where’s my medal? Hero! My kids will be so proud.

  1. I agree. We like to throw around terms far too easily these days.
