A teachable moment

A quick note to those motoring sages, the ones who, from behind the leather-trimmed steering wheels of their leased Chrysler Sebrings, are compelled to offer advice to cyclists:

When you see a cyclist at night, at ten o'clock at night, coming home from four hours of night school, wearing a cinched backpack stuffed with texbooks, toes and crotch soaked from the all-day-rain, blinded from your ilk's xenon high beams, and exhausted from over an hour on the bike for the third time today...

this is not a teachable moment.
