Segways send subtle message at 4th of July Parade

Those crazy kids at Open Cda are at it again.

A recent post points out the two guys riding Segways in the parade, touting Souza for Mayor campaign signs. Writes Bill, “It is subtle but appropriate that a Segway would symbolically lead a movement to segue Coeur d’Alene into an era of genuine progress and trust.”

But wait. There's more. Turns out the riders were Bill Whittle, a nationally recognized conservative political and motivational speake who lives and works in Los Angeles.  And Burt Rutan, the founder and Chairman Emeritus of Scaled Composites, a way-out-in-front-of-the-leading-edge aerospace and specialty composites development company located in Mojave, California. He now lives in North Idaho. More here.

Does this mean Mary has already secured the California vote?
