Apr 23, 2002 10:42 AM
Always over the top. Who wants to see the underside?


Believe it or not, I remember reading that in a "Miss Manners" column. I've never forgotten it for some strange reason. Apparently, fancy toilet paper has a top and bottom side.

Apr 23, 2002 12:36 PM
Use us and abuse us for market research purposes! As someone said above, how about age ranges, or how much $ did you spend on your ride(s) last year, how many centuries did you ride last year, or do you ride for pleasure, fitness, racing, all of the above.

Is is too early to speculate on Le Tour? How many stages will LA win? Who will get the points jersey? The mountain jersey? The rookie jersey? What is LA's chance of winning the Amstel? He is riding it isn't he?

Hey, you can always go to USA Today for brainless info-tistics.

Here's another: Do you crumple or fold your TP?

Maybe we don't need the quick poll?
