House of Cards

[whitespace] Pedaling Toward Prosperity

By Mark Ewert

Personally, I can't ride a bike for the life of me, but being the ecotopian that I am, I have nothing but the utmost respect for Critical Mass. Thus I was thrilled to see two good cards come up for their future--goodbye, sad times, hello, glad times.

The Six of Swords suggests peace and clarity after all the harassment they've gone through, with hints of fresh new strategies--and even connections with other groups working internationally for bikers' rights and more humane urban planning.

The Queen of Pentacles indicates a practical love that nurtures, possibly extended by a woman. Offering this kind of aid opens one up to receiving it. Voilà: Critical Mass gives bikes away to poor kids, and Carole Migden in turn champions Critical Mass in the Assembly. Go, Critical Mass.
