curt(is) locke replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"Agreed that it was unnecessarily aggressive driving on the part of the CTA driver. I've had more than a few encounters with the CTA over the years. Fortunately, you lived to tell the tale. However, I think I'll pass on the movie. "

"I wouldn't call the it "journalistic lobbying" -- it's simply journalism. It's what the Fourth Estate is suppose to do. MORE fines is NOT the solution for funding shortfalls. I think it's a fundamentally flawed…"

curt(is) locke replied to Gage B.'s discussion Angry City.
""Verging on racist"?! No, let's call it what it is -- it IS racist (and elitist and classist.) What next, clp, a lecture on eugenics? You are not half as clever as you pretend to be. But "stimulating" legitimate debate is…"

"Correction This November in Chicago was one of the colder on record -- 14th coldest since temps have been officially recorded in 1870. As a consequence, the transition from road runner to hamster was dramatic -- 161 road miles vs. 300 hamster miles…"
