Rolling, Rolling, Rolling

Scot DeGraf'

Scot DeGraf’s article ("Less is More," May 2005) was great, but he missed a critical mode of transportation: the bicycle. I am in my mid-50s, and co-workers—including people in their 70s—and I bicycle up to 10 miles one way to work. When the weather does not permit cycling, the bus system in Denver is adequate to get to work without using a car. Walking is the most civilized mode of transportation, but if a destination is too far to walk, bicycling is a close second.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
