The Slice

Tracking automobilists

A bike-riding friend who lives in Minnesota likes to track the erratic, dangerous misadventures of people driving cars.

He refers to them as "automobilists."

I suspect this is in response to the way those who hate bike riders sneeringly use the word "bicyclist."

That sort of cracks me up. I would be tempted to start borrowing that term. But, like most bike riders, I am also an automobilist.

So never mind.
