M is for minutae...

...As in things people obsess over during the silly season. Latest source of pontification: a photo of Barack Obama riding a bicycle and looking a little dorky. As Obama himself noted, at least he wore a helmet. Reminds me of a guy I saw while biking by the East River yesterday. He wore a suit and was chatting on a cellphone while riding. And I don't think he was wearing a helmet.

Then again, this is New York, where people live on the edge.
