Joe Biden said he’s fine after this morning’s bicycle accident, but he won’t be feeling fine a few hours hence — trust me. (I’ve been there.)

The late Sydney Pollack suffered a similar bicycle accident 22 years ago, resulting in a broken hip. Both misfortunes happened because of those infernal bike pedal “cages” that riders put their feet into — Pollack and Biden couldn’t pull their feet out in time. Pollack told me this directly over the phone — it was the fault of those damn pedal cages.
