Michelle and Tori talk with Randy Cohen, formerly "The Ethicist" columnist for the New York Times, now host of "Person Place Thing". They discuss the ethics of everything from paying your transit fare, to who gets the last bike share bike at a station, to whether it's ethical (if not legal) to ride through a red light if there is no cross traffic. Randy claims to be "much less nice" than either Michelle or Tori, but withdraws the comment when Michelle confesses to dealing physically with a bike messenger who tried to run her down in a crosswalk.
