Amy Babich

While some know Amy Babich as a math professor, bicycle dealer, or politician, most Austinites know her from her Chronic letters to the editor. The vision expressed in each letter is practically (morally?) equivalent to what Austin aspires to be, or at least to the reputation our city has: Bicycles, so pure and kind, rule over cars, so trashy and rude. Amy can mathematically prove this: While our excessive use of cars creates huge problems, increased use of bicycles would solve those problems, therefore we should all use bicycles instead of cars – q.e.d. She speaks for all of us. We hope that Amy Babich perseveres in leading more of us to emulate her inspirational lifestyle.
