This Xmas I'm giving sarcastic remarks, barbs and insults to those I love. In return, however, cash is appreciated. I can always apologize later as a part of my New Year's self improvement…Continue

Joe Guzzardo replied to Haddon's discussion Cars on bike paths, it's getting much worse.
"Heh, I rode by it this morning on the way to work. This is the third time I've seen a car parked? along the bike path in that vicinity. I can't wait until the flyover is completed. But then I guess drivers will find some other more novel…"

Joe Guzzardo replied to Bob Kastigar's discussion Should Chicago Implement a Bike Tax? Lincoln Park Candidates Consider It
"I guess it really comes down to the issue of  taxation without representation, in some respects. I wouldn't mind paying a reasonable fee if in return we got the infrastructure benefits you mentioned as well as a greater say in general…"

Joe Guzzardo replied to Haddon's discussion I can FINALLY strap my bike to the wings of my 6 seater Cesna plane.
"Hmmm, try using a ceiling hook next time for storing the Lexus. A high end vehicle like that shouldn't drip any oil on the floor, although getting it on and off the hook can be a chore."
