"Bike Path!", Starring Harrison Ford and. . . .

So far as I can tell, this is completely serious.

There is an article in this morning's Times on the problems a proposed bike path along the river is having as it passes NBC Universal. NBC Universal doesn't want it anywhere near their property. Why? I quote the Times:

One bike advocate said Universal executives told him they feared that people would use the path to lob unsolicited screenplays onto the studio's nearby production lot - something that apparently happens at other spots when a Universal film scores big at the box office.


You can find the rest of it here, if you're interested. But it's just about bike paths.

I wonder if I flew to New York, cycled by Doubleday, lobbed the novel into the lobby. . . .

No. Probably not.
