Attention DUers: If the weather's nice, I might personally surround Chad Wolf's house tomorrow,

at least in Real Clear Politics's interpretation of the word "surround," which they apparently define as "being in the public street that runs in front of the house where Chad Wolf lives."

It's on the way to the Safeway, and if it's not raining, I might go up there on my bicycle to pick up some food.

1. Flip him off once for me

Coming and going, so you don't get off-balance.

5. There are already enough pictures of last week's event. I'm just going for the groceries.

When you're driving a bicycle on a public street, you're operating a vehicle.

Hang up and drive. Not a personal attack, but really, driving a bicycle is driving.

If you don't count the two black Chevy Tahoe (or equivalent) SUVs with US government plates that are parked in front of his house at all hours, it looks like all the others.

The last time I went by was two weeks ago. After watching the comet, I went up to the Safeway at 11:00 at night. They were parked there. I came back at about 11:30. They were parked there.

6. Not that it should sway you, I'm generally against protesting in front of

someoneís home and family.

Itís not that I give a damn about Chad Wolf, but I do care about similar protests against Bidenís Admin by ignorant white wingers.

Again, donít blame you, but Iíd likely protest in front DHS offices, etc.

7. It was a joke. I'm going to get groceries. That's all. And only if weather permits.

In RealClearPolitics's sense of the word, that constitutes surrounding his house.

There are a lot of streets that I could take to get to the Safeway.

The shortest way is troublesome. It requires climbing a steep hill on the way to the store, on a narrow street with no bike lanes, with parking on both sides, and with intersecting streets with lots of turning traffic. It's downhill on the way back, but if someone opens a door or turns in front of you, you'll be going too fast to stop.

The Chad Wolf route eliminates the grade, the narrowness, the heavy traffic, and the side streets with turning traffic. The route is longer, but it eliminates the hazards inherent in the direct route. If he lived on some other street, I wouldn't bother going past his house.

9. Hey, I'm just another DUer trying to live in this insane era. If I were still a

bicyclist, I might ride by and stop a moment too. Iím just concerned about protesting at peoplesí houses, because our side will suffer too.

11. I hear you. I'm not too crazy about that either.

If the guys in the SUV take pictures of everyone who goes by, they probably already have a few rolls filled with pictures of me.

And what's a "roll"?
