I couldn't decide of this is news or not, but I was persuaded to post the article. The messenger business is tough and getting tougher because of the Internet. Messengers used to be able to rake in as much as $100 day (!), but those days are gone. Most of those hipster kids riding their fixed gear bikes down Market Street aren't really messengers. Real messengers ride bikes with gears and baskets when they're on the job.

It's old news, I know, but the Chronicle reported on it so some editor decided it was newsworthy. I thought yesterday's story that (gasp!) BART bathrooms are filthy stinking disgusting pits of slime and spew wasn't exactly breaking news either.
