I wonder if we might ought look in a mirror. Most, if not all of us get really pissed off when we get stereotyped by non motorcycle riders in a way WE don't like, even though many of us like certain parts of the stereotyping. We also hate it when the deeds of a few are used to blame/affect many.
However, it would appear that the cancellation may be the results of only a few. We don't seem to have any real evidence otherwise. By blaming all politicians, the town of Palm Springs, etal, we may be reacting the same way a few of them did when they read about Laughlin.
The politicians in Holloster may have gone forward for less than noble reasons ($$$$$$). Loved it, though.
