Featured Headline: Our good friend Don "Roadblock" Ward, the 2010 Livable Streets Person of the Year, has just launched a new column about bicycling in Los Angeles at KCET's website.  An excerpt from the first column: "But back then getting a driver's license was a rite of passage that almost every kid looked forward to, especially in Los Angeles where people barely get their mail without hopping in an automobile. The key to a car was the key to the world. In a matter of years I became the typical L.A. driver: fast, aggressive, aggravated at the endless traffic."
