Lura.net Mentioned in USA Today

I’m in USA Today!

Go see the article online.

I even have an inset quote, in the print edition.

Here’s the passage about me:

  • It isn’t exactly Dear Abby, but Lee, 27, a technical writer from San Diego with two master’s degrees in history, has a larger perspective on this new form of self-publishing.

    “Think about the past,” she says. “Who did you have to be to get 150 people in a day to gather in a spot and listen to you? I’m nobody.”

    But, she adds, “obviously the world has changed so much that I have a certain voice that people seem to be interested in.”

Stroller as Baby Assault Vehicle (BAV)

Recently, I’ve noticed an alarming trend toward larger, more obnoxious strollers.

These strollers have wheels like a bicycle, and have enough cargo room for a family hiking trip.

Perhaps they’re made to fit a full-sized adult? At least it would make sense! It’s an answer to the Baby Boomer’s issues: a stroller for the child that you’re having at the age of 45 which will double as a wheelchair for grandma in a couple of years.

And the parents are using these strollers as weapons: literally. At the Wild Animal Park a woman came into the bathroom with a huge stroller – - so wide that it hardly squeezed in between the sinks and the stalls. In the process of forcing to make it fit she actually ran over my foot…. and this wasn’t the first time.
Just a few days prior another parent ran over my foot with one of these Baby Assault Vehicles while making her way to her other Urban Assault Vehicle: a Ford Explorer.
