On Tensions between bicyclists, drivers
Nose4it - relax a bit. Don't take my post so seriously. You completely missed the point. Let me pose it in a different more personal context. You can tell me you have never blown through a four way stop in a nice quiet neighborhood with no traffic coming in any direction? You will actually unclip, come to a complete stop, check left, then right, then left again, get rolling again, clip the pedal and continue? Really? If that's the case, then I tip my hat to you.
Well said Janesvillean...well said.
Where is Steve Knox when we need him? Here's some information for motorists who don't really know that much about road biking. We have special shoes that clip into the pedals. These clips make pedaling easier and more efficient thus expending less energy for the cyclist. If we come to an intersection with stop signs (assuming no traffic) we are going to blow right through that intersection because it's easier that unclipping and clipping back into the pedals. The same goes for intersections with traffic lights on less busy streets. There really is no difference when we 'blow' through an intersection and a motorist rolls through a stop sign or does not make a complete stop when negotiating a right turn on a red signal if traffic is clear from the left. Everybody breaks rule of the road....everybody! Cyclists can be just as arrogant as motorists. So why let the arrogance of others bother you? Get over it and take the high road (no pun intended). Oh, and Greg, stay off the sidewalk when biking. You don't belong there. If you are that cautious about sharing the road, try a stationary bike.
On "God is with us at worst moments"
You know this will bring out the worst type of God hating comments. Why do you do this? Is your purpose to further put the Janesville residents in a negative light?
On How should state fund road projects?
You have got to be either the biggest doofus blogger I've ever read, or the most ignorant thinker around. Your posts make no sense at all. China owns Illinois roads? Wow, that's fringe! So in your weird twisted way of thinking, the money I spend in mainland China (where I frequent) goes to the roads like Michigan Ave or Rush Street in Chicago? Or perhaps the tolls that drivers pay on the Jane Addams helps reduce our federal Chinese debt? You seriously need to stop drinking and typing. It is very dangerous for the brain in your butt.
On Jump from space's edge provides collective moment
Pay attention. It was the LEAD story on CBS Sunday News with Jeff Glor and NBC Sunday Night News with Lester Holt both of which aired on October 14th at 5:00pm and 5:30pm respectfully.
On What TV show would you bring back from the dead?
My Mother the Car, Joanie Loves Chachi, The Ropers, and The Brady Bunch Variety Hour.
On NFL upholds Seahawks’ disputed win over Packers
I'm a Packer fan just like most of the other bloggers, but come people, it's only a game. Do you really take it that seriously? It was a stupid call by inexperienced referees, so get over it already.
On Irreplaceable replacements
Famous last words:"You want fries with that?" - Pete Best
On Ryan says he misstated marathon claim
All you holier than thou hypocrites need to get off your high horses. Everybody - and I mean everybody - has lied at one time or another.
