Many people think the East Village is a dangerous place to lock up your bike, and it is!

But sometimes, bicycle tires are returned, like here on Second Avenue:

Returned bicycle tires.

A libertarian would tell you there's a lesson to be learned here, that the U-lock is like government regulations, and if you're restrained by these, you'll be all mangled, but if you're not, you'll be free, like the part of the bike that wasn't locked up, and like the tires on the left.

What they don't tell you is that a tire disconnected from a bicycle is useless. The best you can hope for is to find another disconnected tire to join in singing praises to Ayn Rand, until you're reconnected with a tire-less bike, and made whole again, or consigned to the back of a garbage truck.

Structuralism rules… in the East Village Today!
