Zoe Williams: Just like cyclists, pedestrians must find a sense of self-righteousness

On Monday Kyle Coen was killed near Sittingbourne, Kent, on the way to his girlfriend’s house. He was 14 years old and became the 60th cyclist to be killed in Britain this year.

And yet in 2011, in Greater London, 77 pedestrians were killed (to 16 cyclists); 903 were seriously injured (to 555 cyclists); their deaths were up 33% on the year before, the serious injuries up 6%.

Jiří Kuběna, básník
"Vždycky jsem cítil ponížení, že musím do nějakých obskurních rubrik psát: národnost česká, když jsem Moravan, ne Čech. Moje vlast je Morava a žádné Čechy, a už vůbec ne infámní, hrůzné, bohorouhačské Česko, ten obludný výplod našeho zdivočelého, prohnilého, nekonečně zkorumpovaného, nestoudného, každou sebemenší hodnotu okamžitě špinícího, rozkládajícího, relativizujícího liberalismu."
