Paul in Cin City

sydney was awesome and his senseless death was a real loss to a lot of people. He was crotchety at times, but he was honest and knew bikes.

I’m crotchety too at times BTW, so I don’t mean it as a real insult, and we’ve all met a few “nosepickers” at the LBS.

I guess it was good that the responsible person went on Dr. Full of Himself, but if it is court ordered it’s like buying one of those dolled up Walmart bikes.


Paul, I don’t disagree. But I think that this kid is pretty earnest in getting his message across. He could have been ended up picking up trash like Boy George, but instead he’s doing something that will hopefully bring positive results. I’m not sure if he has fulfilled his legal obligation, but I got the impression that he has, and this was outside of that. And I’m pretty sure that plenty of parents made their teens sit down and watch that show.

While most teens think they’re invincible, perhaps some will see themselves differently now, and realize they don’t want to end up like Patrick.

I am Patrick’s aunt and I just wanted to let you know that Patrick has fulfilled his court obligations before he went to the Dr. Phil show. He continues to speak at schools and such for no fee or any type of court ordered necessity. He takes what happen very seriously and it is very important to him that other teens hear his message and do not make the same mistake he did.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
