Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

You know, technically that's correct because what he said was that it would be stupid. Stupid is an adjective, not a noun, and therefore not a name, thus not namecalling.

I keep looking for a resolution to his case, and have yet to find out if there were any charges filed.
