Wild in the streets

In her last two columns, Star Tribune metro columnist Katherine Kersten has sought to wake up local citizens and municipal authorities to the antics of the Critical Mass mob, the loosely organized bicycle group that ties up rush-hour traffic once a month in cities around the United States and elsewhere. Minneapolis is one of their newer venues. Kathy first tumbled to the antics of Critical Mass last month in “Last week was a preview of next year’s street battles,” alluding to the challenges that face law enforcement seeking to maintain public order outside the Republican national convention that will take place in St. Paul. Kathy returned to the subject last Thursday with “Bike riding mob owns the streets of Minneapolis” and continues today with “Cycling group’s west coast antics could be replicated here.”
