Vice Chairman Kohn's Bike Parking Strategy is Unusual!

Some want to make cycling a "left/right" thing. It's really NOT. Seen in last Tuesday's Wall Street Journal was the photo above. I WANT my own covered parking spot. It puts the notion of the necessity for a kickstand in an entirely different light. Buddy would look silly just laid down on that nice painted garage floor, with the recessed lights overhead. The actual article tells more about Vice Chairman Kohn's bike commuting here, including a description of his commute clothing gear. Perhaps, he reads Andy Cline's Carbon Trace and subscribes to "The One Mile Solution."
I do wonder, however, why he elected to park his bike in the reserved parking garage slot rather than keeping it somewhere close at hand in his office. I imagine that the Vice Chairman of the Fed rates an office that would easily contain a bike out of sight of all but those "in the know."
At another level, I'd like to see bike commuting not considered as newsworthy in the least...
