The raggies


I wanted to read about President Obama's budget this morning in the Hartford Courant, but it was on pages A3 & A9. I hate turning pages, so I skipped that. What was on the front page? Even more important news: The Rip Torn saga brewing in Salisbury! As a cyclist, lover of Salisbury and its mountains and daily reader of Bike Snob NYC, there's a strange kismet to all this.

  1. I like to ride my bike and hike up Salisbury's hills.
  2. Rip Torn likes to hang out around Salisbury and perpetrate bizarre drunken crimes.
  3. Rip Torn is linked to cycling because BSNYC has taken to using the RT mug shot when approving of things.
So, I have concluded that Rip Torn is the world's most famous raggie.

Are you mixing up Rip Torn and Slim Pickens?

Rip into a Slim Jim?
Oops, my bad.

I thought it was smack or slam or snap.
