    Eric’s an all-around great guy and a real anchor for the Metro newsroom during the recent turbulent times at the paper. Here’s to a quick recovery for him.

    We were on the other side of NW Highway when it happened.

    A sickening thud – no brakes, horns or sounds.

    The people that were there first thought he had died.

    Thank goodness he can get better – please keep good thoughts as he starts his slow road to recovery.

    That’s about 500 yards(as the crow flies) from where Paul Jerde was hit this summer on the Mockingbird Bridge while riding his bike.

    The DMN did a series of articles this summer on “Cars vs. everything w/ two feet” after half a dozen cyclists, David Feherty, the wife of a Belo exec and a couple others were mowed down. The DMN seemed to take a real drivers slant to the articles. It left many people who enjoy the lake, bitter. Mostly because the articles were peppered with half-truths, poorly captioned photos and maybe a bold faced lie. Some even argued that the articles suggested that the drivers owned the roads and everyone else should stay the hell off.

    Will this tragedy on Sunday finally be a wakeup call that there is a problem?

    Eric is a dear friend of ours, and he is a fighter. Please pray for his recovery.
