There was scooterzine. I must have made this in 2000 or so, just after moving from Boston to Chicago. I was very excited about my scooter, now that I could ride it. They were more rare on the street then, and there was only one scooter message board and they all seemed to know each other. In the interest of being hip and underground I made "Scooterzine" - on yahoo geocities! Which is now closing. I had forgotton it was still up so I captured the pages in a PDF for posterity. It was my first blog, even though I bristled at that term at the time.
So I share with you! Its so cute! Look at the non-existent margins and the bad photo titling job! But I do have to admit the Cook County Hospital story is still one of my favorites, and I'm bound to tell it if anyone ever questions the idea of socialized medicine in this country. For one moment in history, I found it.
