worse than sweeps?  The city rousted 4 tents from between 11th and 12th on SW Taylor recently.  They did so by installing 14 bike racks!  Yes, 14 in the western 1/2 of the block.  There was no legitimate reason for sweeping so the city found that bicyclists were clamoring for 14 new parking spaces across from First Baptist church.  Crazy! And inhumane.

 Backstory?  The shop owner at the corner of 11/Taylor had legitimate complaints about people soiling her building doorway and otherwise making her customers uncomfortable.  She raised hell and got a response.  14 bike racks.
