COCKBURN: LEFT NUT: New York Press' resident crazy lefty loon, Alexander Cockburn, finished up last week's column with a goofy little non-sequiter titled "Bikes Are Bad For Your Balls," sharing what is apparently new scientific evidence that bike riding causes testicular discomfort and can even lead to low sperm counts. How this relates to Cockburn's usual left-of-Nader drivel is known only by the author, but he for some reason leaves out the pertinent information that the best cyclist in the world, four-time defending Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong, is in fact missing a testicle as a result of his battle with cancer. But hey, at least he doesn't suffer from Cockburn.
