Surviving the RAGBRAI >> Book Reviews teverow


Brian David Bruns thought riding into the mist during the nearly 500-mile bike ride across Iowa "was cooling." Everyone else, he writes, thought it was like "riding into a steam bath."

by Paul Teverow

For almost my entire life, I have enjoyed bike riding. In good weather, I ride 15-20 miles a couple of times a week. I also participate in maybe three or four organized bike rides a year and usually come in pretty close to last on the 30-50 mile routes. But unlike several Joplin riders I know, I have never done anything on the order of RAGBRAI, the acronym for The [Des Moines] Register’s ...more

Terror in Paris--Je suis Charlie "Yesterday’s murders at the magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris were not just an attack on journalism, they were yet another declaration of open warfare on free speech. Journalists who take on extremism and report on the abuses of power are a flash point for violence, and the past year has been an extraordinarily brutal reminder. The list of journalists’ deaths across the globe grew every day, including the murders of freelance reporter Aung Kyaw Naing, "Par Gyi," in Burma; 21-year-old intern Facely Camara in Womé, Guinea; blogger Marcos de Barros Leopoldo Guerra in Ubatuba, Brazil; reporter Vyacheslav Veremiy, 32, in Kiev, Ukraine and freelance photographer James Foley in Syria...Last night, the citizens in the crowds who were "not afraid” in Paris, London, and cities throughout Europe and the United States were not journalists. They knew that their right to speak freely is inherently granted and they know what’s at stake when it's threatened. The only way to keep free speech alive is to stand up for it -- and use it. The message they sent, we carry: There’s no backing down. There’s only moving forward, doing our jobs, making your voices heard."
