Bike to work, root for your horse, watch where you park

Good morning.We’re not out of the rainy weather pattern yet, but it’s coming to an end. Dare we hope for a good -weather weekend?

Look for your helmet now, because tomorrow is Bike-to-Work Day .

As bad as that dog attack on Clinton schoolchildren was yesterday, it could have been worse if not for the school bus driver who hit the dog until it released its grip on one child, and kicked it away as it attacked another.

Fruit for celebration: It’s the 10-year anniversary of the first Apple Store (right here in Tyson’s Corner). Although we’re platform-neutral, we recognize how the concept changed electronics retailing. We’ll have a report this morning from the store itself.

50 tickets a day??? We have the same respect for public-sector workers as we do for all workers, and we’re sure parking enforcement officer Loretta Robinson being honored by D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray was deserved. Still, she writes 50 tickets a day, although she said, cracking a small smile, “I try to be fair with them.” Yikes.

Be careful where you park yourself today; the safest place of all, of course, is at PostLocal, where we keep you informed, engaged and entertained.
