“I have a dream”, but…
These ads for some Florida beaches were all over the Red Line subway car this morning. Apparently, you’ll like going to Florida because you’ll see as many giraffes as people of color.

WORLD NAKED BIKE RIDE BOSTON | On a bike rack in Somerville
The web site for the World Naked Bike Ride has lots of details. They describe it as grown-up, very respectful, party time; as bare as you dare!
