Tucson is often considered a bicycle-friendly city, but one still hears heated discussions about whether car drivers are prone to crowd cyclists or the cyclists are interfering with traffic flow for cars.
Back in the day, however, it appeared to be bicycles versus pedestrians. Often the bicycles weren't the tools of health-conscious riders hoping to spare the environment, but of boys who had yet to learn that pedestrians weren't meant to be targets.
From the Arizona Daily Star, Thursday, Jan. 22, 1914:
It was an interesting story, but not nearly as interesting as the tale of a young lady who may have run off with a young man of questionable character.
From the Star of the same date:
If one believes in romance, one may decide that Miss Richardson is now happily married in San Francisco, although perhaps her husband will leave her destitute when he commits another crime and is sent to prison.
If one is more inclined to watch TV shows like "Criminal Minds" than "Downton Abbey," one may believe the young man of bad character took the lady against her will and her remains will turn up in a shallow grave or the trunk of a car.
The reader may have already guessed what the Morgue Lady is thinking. She watches both TV shows, and clearly spends a little too much time on them.
