I Wish My Congressional Rep Said Things Like This

Monday’s Quote

Let’s have a moment of silence for all those Americans who are stuck in traffic on their way to the gym to ride the stationary bicycle.”

~ Earl Blumenauer, Oregon Congressman

Source & context unknown.

Of note, the pedestrian version of the stationary bike, the treadmill, came on to the scene in 1817 to “rationalize” prisoners through sheer exertion and to break them down with the monotonous repetition of walking–and going nowhere for their effort.

The car and associated traffic seem a punitive tool of their own.
