more google fun. type "miserable failure" into google and press "feeling lucky" button.

on a related note, too bad the president doesn't seem to advocate alternative transportation like bike commuting.
This is a non-cycling topic BUT this is old newsDave Hickey

Get your facts straight before you post crap like this. This was all over the news a couple of days ago. The website manipulated Googles search feature.
so the prez does or does not support alt transport measures?curtybirdychopper

I didnt post any facts, did I? the google thing is hilarious, and George W deserves more than to be made fun of.

Also, it seems like this is more the work of some google engineers.

anyway, i did mean to inquire if the administration has been an advocate of bike friendliness, so its not off topic either.
maybe in your opinion.......................Dave Hickey

I'm not going to reply to a politically biased post on the general cycling board.

none. google's still your friend...
the House of Representatives Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, Treasury and Independent Agencies has put together a bill that "will entirely eliminate some $600 million worth of annual federal funding for bike paths, walkways and other such transportation niceties in fiscal year 2004." Meanwhile, the bill increases highway spending: they would receive $34.1 billion in fiscal 2004, up $2.5 billion.
