Responding to Diane Therese's concern about bicycles on the sidewalk (letter Oct. 26), she must accept the fact that we who use the sidewalks are second-class citizens and thus our needs do not register. Only those in private wheeled vehicles matter. Your city will happily take your taxes, but do not expect any support or assistance if you do not drive. I still have a sore wrist from a similar encounter with a cyclist some years back. Just pay your taxes and be quiet.
