Re: “The late, great Joe Sobran's lesson for the Tea Party

Check out Rand Paul's promise not to touch Social Security or Medicare. The Tea Party is a joke.

Keep the Guvmit out my Medicare!

Re: “Will Charleston complete its vision of a bike-friendly peninsula?

Zigzag,

Following too closely, really? It's obvious that this was a politically motivated reversal. But it doesn't even matter who was at fault, the result is the same. Bicyclists are never going to win in collisions with cars. Never. You can scream about the traffic laws all you want but you can't overcome the laws of physics.

I wonder if you support laws requiring bicycles ridden on public roadways to have brake lights? How about bicycle driver insurance? How about a tax on every bike and bike equipment to pay for bike paths?

Did you know that you have to come to a complete stop at stop signs and red lights? Did you know that you are not allowed to turn left on a red or cross outside of a crosswalk? Did you know that many streets have minimum speed limits? My horn works and I use it when people obstruct the roadways in a selfish manner. Now you know.

Re: “Will Charleston complete its vision of a bike-friendly peninsula?

Greg, are you a journalist or an advocate? I wish your story contained a few more facts and a lot less propaganda. How safe or unsafe is Charleston for biking? How many people die on bikes every year? How about you report a statistic every once in a while instead of censoring arguments that point out inconvenient truths.
