2) D. The 505 followed only Washington, D.C., and Portland, Ore., in a list of cities with good restaurant options for vegans and vegetarians.

3) A. After nearly naked cyclists took to the streets of the City Different in June, complaints rolled into Santa Fe’s City Council. The ride was intended to protest oil dependence and promote cyclist safety and visibility. About 20 riders participated with varying degrees of nudity. Some were fully clothed, and a few stripped down as far as the law would let them. In Santa Fe, only frontal genitals need be covered. A new rule has been proposed that would require coverage of booties and breasts, too.
