paint it black

Probably my favourite image of this country, by Banksy

Went to his site and found this appropriate quote by Emo Philips:

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised God doesn’t work that way, so I stole one and prayed for forgiveness.

I'm not a fan of CCTV, but if they're going to have it anyway, it would be nice if one of the cameras was obviously pointed at the bike racks at my train station. Speaking of which, we were left in no doubt as to the regard in which cyclists are held by the train company when they recently spruced up our station with a new coat of paint. They did the bike racks without warning cyclists, painting around the bikes and splashing some. Imagine how motorists would react if that happened to their cars.
