Regarding MS and News Corp: I’d probably “pay extra” for a search engine that automatically excluded all Murdock content – in other words, avoid one that did.Also, it’s problematic for MS to ally themselves with so polarizing a figure as Murdock. Maybe they’ll suck up to the Moonies next.

Thanks for the cycling links. I feel like the cyclists’ view doesn’t get much play outside the community. Sad that there are such “community” devisions, but there it is.
