Looking for a Mole for Tonight's SFBC Meeting

I received the message below from the SF Bicycle Coalition about a special meeting tonight:

SPECIAL SFBC MEETING: HELP GET BIKE PLAN BACK ON TRACK!

6pm-7:30pm SFBC office, 995 Market St., Ste. 1550

As you probably know by now, there is an injunction against the City, holding up key bike improvements, including new bike lanes, sharrows, and even bike racks. (See
http://www.sfbike.org/network for more.) Think this is ridiculous? Frustrated by the City's lack of action so far? Want to find out more and to join like-minded bike supporters to brainstorm ways to help get this Bike Plan back on track? If so, then please join us for a special emergency SFBC member meeting to discuss the situation & to work together toward progress.

Answering the questions above in sequence: no, no, and no.

But seriously, sports fans, District 5 Diary is looking for a mole to attend tonight's meeting to provide me with an account of the discussion, confidentiality guaranteed! Just send your notes to rmajora@comcast.net

And you should spend more quality time with your dictionary. The 400+ Bicycle Plan is a major project in San Francisco, and the SFBC is really the prime mover---with its enablers in city government---behind this misguided Plan. Hence, since they are playing the role of a quasi-government agency, they need to be monitored by someone outside the bike cult.

just because I responded to this post does not mean I hold membership with the SFBC. If you are so interested in the content of the meeting - perhaps attend it yourself?
I stand by the word I used - YOU ARE DELUDED & MISLED.

And I was referring to "disillisioned"[sic], not "gross," though that doesn't seem like the mot juste, either. (I mean, like, gag me with a spandex jersey.) I didn't accuse you of being with the SFBC; I was explaining why what they do should be of general interest. If I went to the meeting, it would just bum them out and tend to inhibit the conversation.
