"i'd gladly pay those taxes if i never had to worry about paying for healthcare again, to name one example. Beware of the label "entitlement." it's only been put out there by sly pols to stir up resentments."

"I dunno about anybody else, but I've found drivers much more tolerant today than there were a few years ago.  They leave room, they often stop and wait.  They don't (often) lay on the horn. Try taking a long tour outside the city…"

"If you pay enough attention, you notice that they do (and it's not a rant when you're talking about a good!) We pay these costs one way or another - the difference is in paying them as an explicit tax or as an implicit tax. "

"Interesting that when people rant and rail about the good of "socialism" they very rarely bother to mention the high cost of taxes necessary to pay for all these entitlement programs.  "

Hi Bob, I am considering applying to MBAC. I was wondering if you wanna grab a half hour lunch or a drink during a weekday this or next week... meet at a place at your convenience?

Hi. Thanks for the message. I think at this point I am bringing my bike, but I'd be interested in what you have as a loaner? Richard

Bob,  I can live without most of the things Ghostery suppresses (facebook, twitter integration, tracker cookies, certain ads). And if I 'need' to see a particular component, I just add an exception.

I run Ghostery in combo with AdBlock Plus. I rarely see ads anymore.

Thanks for all the info- I'll let you know what I end up doing! Haven't been to Mackinaw since I was about 10 and all I remember is fudge and pony rides... :)

The messaging system on here is a bit odd...I think you have to friend someone before you can message them. But thanks for the trip advice! Looks like both MI-WI ferries are running this year so it's nice to have those options, though they are expensive:

Do you think it's worth it to buy/carry "Round Lake Michigan: A Bicyclist's Tour Guide"? I don't have a smartphone or garmin or anything so I thought the maps in here might prove useful.
