      Quite coincidentally, following up on my earlier post today,
      see this on Paul Goodman:

      >Hi Car Free,
      >My name is Jesse Florendo and I work with a documentary called Paul Goodman
      >Changed My Life. We’re sponsoring a contest to encourage people to reduce
      >global warming and improve transportation options in their own communities.
      >Winners in the US and Europe will receive new bicycles from Breezer Bikes
      >and Biomega, respectively. The contest is co-sponsored by the Alliance for
      >Biking & Walking, the World Carfree Network, the Bicycle Coalition of
      >Maine, and Dissent Magazine.
      >We’d love to get the word out about this contest to your readers. This is a
      >really cool opportunity that we think they’d be excited about. There’s some
      >more info about the contest below, or you can check out
      >paulgoodmanfilm.com/bike. The contest launched October 1st and runs through
      >November, so if you’re interested in posting about it, today or tomorrow
      >would be great. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions
      >about the contest, the film, or Paul Goodman.
      >Jesse Florendo
      >JSL Films
      >To honor 20th century philosopher and social theorist Paul Goodman’s
      >legacy, JSL Films, producer of the documentary Paul Goodman Changed My
      >Life, is holding a contest to help encourage transportation alternatives.
      >Paul Goodman, a writer, a radical, and a renaissance man, was the co-author
      >of “Banning Cars from Manhattan,” a 1961 proposal to improve New York’s
      >streets by eliminating private auto traffic. Nearly half a century later,
      >his ideas are now heralded as being before their time, with limiting
      >traffic in city centers becoming more and more common.
      >Paul Goodman Changed My Life is honoring Goodman’s legacy by inviting
      >people to propose change in their own communities. Anyone who submits five
      >proposals to their local government (mayor, city council, etc.) can enter a
      >drawing to win a new bicycle. One winner in the United States will win a
      >bike courtesy of Breezer Bikes, and one winner in Europe will win a bike
      >courtesy of Biomega.
