As someone who lives well west of town, I sympathize. However,

"...if Steamboat would decide..."

Fortunately, it doesn't work that way. It's up to an entrepreneur to risk his own funds (not the city's) to exploit that demand, if there is any.

The Illinois Gov just got his head handed to him. The Prairie State is now a shall-issue state, which means that virtually any law abiding resident 21 or older will be able to carry concealed pursuant to the relevant regulatory mandates. So Illinois residents now have the option of defending themselves using the same weapons that Rosie O'Donnell's bodyguards use to defend her.

An opportunity to flog one of my favorite non profits: Operation Gratitude - an effortless way to support those at the pointy end of the spear. Click on the 'mail call' tab to see how much their efforts are appreciated.

Caterwauling about slavery (unqualified evil) or our abuse of the American Indian (an obscenity) contributes little, except as a distraction from any meaningful conversation re: the principles this country was founded upon - where, for the 1st time, citizens were defined as something other than subservient vassals.

No nation on earth can claim to be without mistakes in its past that it regrets in the here & now. If past transgression is the calculus for a present day evaluation, then every human on earth is a miscreant.

You know absolutely nothing about his medical condition except that it exists, but nonetheless speculate he shouldn't have been entitled to a driver's license is therefore to blame. Guilty til proven innocent, in other words. I'm content to let the investigation proceed and wait for the facts & circumstances to be revealed. That you're not just makes you a rubbernecker, and a loathsome one at that.

Thomas Jefferson re: the issue of slavery at the Constitutional Convention: It was like holding a wolf by the ears. You didn't like it, but didn't dare let it go.

Paraphrasing from memory, but it's pretty close.

I do have to wonder why you're so quick denigrate any party to this tragedy based on two words in a news report.

One common denominator I've noticed re: cyclists hogging the road - they're not equipped with a 3rd eye or some other rear view mirror arrangement. I can't even imagine saddling up without my 3rd eye.
