David Byrne is a bicycle lover who rides a bike that looks a lot like mine.
It's deep red with a steel basket and low-rise handlebars too.

called "Cities, Bicycles, and the Future of Getting Around."

Watch out. You might get what you're after!

"Psycho Killer" was the favorite phrase of a fellow art student
at the Rhode Island School of Design.
She called everything she liked "Psycho Killer."
