Brian Kotowski 1 year, 9 months ago on Spoke Talk: Cyclists, motorists sharing the road well

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.

Interesting stuff. I would have guessed a larger percentage with longer commutes, given all the worker bees who don't live in town. I also would have pegged the 'alternative' transportation use to have been marginally higher. The one occasion I've had to ride the bus into town it was packed; the driver told me that was the norm during the AM & PM commutes.

"Limbaugh cacophony"? A broadcast that isn't aired here is cacophonous to you? Sounds like Limbaugh is living rent-free in your head.

You're kind of all over the map. I've not mentioned kids; you've evidently confused me with someone else here. Re: evil based on hypocrisy v. insanity, you've really lost me. Evil is evil, regardless of what you think it's "based" on. If I understand you (a BIG if), Stalin's Russia is less egregious than the Crusades because you see less hypocrisy in secular mass-murder than in religiously-motivated bloodshed? Seriously?

As a card-carrying heathen, I could give a rip about religious sensibilities, except to the extent that our culture is quite rightly based upon them. We have laws on the books against murder, which advise nothing more ambitious than 'Thou Shalt Not Kill.' That people violate that injunction is not an indictment of religion – it's a recognition that evil exists. Stalin presided over a state which reviled religion as the opiate of the masses, and yet murdered so many people as to make Hitler look like Martha Stewart. Not in the name of religion, but in service to a secular lust for power. Which of those two paradigms do you regard to be less wise? If neither is acceptable, what do you propose as an alternative?

Careful, Allen. Advocating personal responsibility and voicing suspicion of an expanding government and will get you labeled a racist, and may even compel the Vice President to call you a terrorist.

Ye gods. It's not just "wrongheaded", Rob - it's absolutely bass-ackwards. I and virtually everyone I know have had to trim expenditures. I hope you and the Pilot will continue shine a light on these cockroaches gorging themselves at the public teat.
