"Well, why do folks bring guns to the beach on a crowded, hot summer eve (search new for this past Sunday at 31st Street Beach around 6:45 p.m.)??"

"That totally sux. I checked in on your progress last Monday (or was it Tuesday?), and you were at 618 miles and 40th place at the time. Sorry to hear about your Greek tragedy. Godspeed in your recovery."

curt(is) locke replied to Marc-Paul Lee's discussion Cam recommendations?
"As though your video cam will awaken a previously unaware public of the erratic, reckless, and aggresive driving of too many motorists. Whatever."

curt(is) locke replied to Marc-Paul Lee's discussion Cam recommendations?
"Well, that's why I ride -- just for the fun of it. I don't need it mediated. I also oppose riding with earbuds -- my ears are essential sensors that heighten my greater awareness of my riding environment. Soundtracks are for film &…"

curt(is) locke replied to Marc-Paul Lee's discussion Cam recommendations?
"Pardon my tangent, but I refuse to subscribe to the popular premise that a video cam enhances my "safety" or my riding experience. I understand that the appearance of a Go-Pro on one's helmet may affect driver behavior, but I will not…"

curt(is) locke replied to Yasmeen's discussion Woman Riding a Divvy Punched and Robbed in South Loop
"Two incidents more than a month apart -- hardly a pattern in of itself. But these type of comments , Alan, DO feed into a broader, more general, and at times irrational fear of "the south side." These two incidents are not even really in…"
