AS A cyclist I have enjoyed the vilification that springs from the pens or keyboards of your readers.

However as a dog-owner, I am starting to feel neglected because I notice a recent lack of comment about dog mess and I thought that it might be high time to consider changing the weekly pointless rant.

So perhaps after people are done complaining about fireworks for the next two weeks, we can start putting the boot back into the pooches and their owners and then, in Springtime, we can revert to bike-bashing.
