Paris suffers smog attack; bike-sharing system to the rescue

New York times piece with the longest url we've ever encountered :}

An excerpt:

Paris has pioneered bicycle and car sharing, putting ranks of bikes and small electric cars in most neighborhoods, and allowing Parisians and tourists to pay low rates to rent them.
