minime is accused, with some justice, of passing on press releases and not looking at them.
Maybe that's not a bad idea. When he tries to make up his own words, he doesn't get it straight.
OK, minime, one more time: It's the American Motorcyclist Association. Just to help you remember, think of it this way. It's not an association of MOTORCYCLES, that's what you find in the parking lot. It's an association of people. The people happen to be MOTORCYCLISTS.
It's a long and sordid story of a lawsuit the AMA lost last year for dirty tricks the AMA played on a business partner named Roger Edmondson. The motorcycle press (both print and electronic) have been handling the AMA with kid-gloves ever since the news first broke. I figure the AMA has enough power to make the press afraid to say much (or really anything) about the lawsuit.
