I’m one of those people who believes that the biggest political threat Hungary currently faces is not right-wing extremism but the Orbán government’s trampling of the rule of law and property rights. But I am also a stickler for getting the story right, so I was unhappy to see that the underlying item Dempsey was tweeting around is at best misleading.

The chill of winter finds most of us wrapped in coats and scarves, yet some might go without such protection in solidarity with the homeless, eeking out survival on the icy streets and snow-laden parks.

Throwing without aiming.

My father, who lives in the countryside, recently said that he has noticed a conspicuous change in Budapest over the last few years. No, it is not the cleanliness of the streets, which are just as dirty as ever. It is not the hectic metropolitan life, which has not slowed down. It is the number of bicyclists, which has grown steadily over the last several years. It has changed the urban landscape of Budapest, and the city will never be the same. The cyclists have invaded the concrete jungle thanks to many efforts, but especially to the Critical Mass movement. Now the movement has bid farewell. Can they claim victory?
