Re: “Three wedding planning tips that won't break the bank

You can also get married for free in any national forest. My wife and I got married at Wilkerson Pass!

Re: “Colorado Springs cancels buffered bike line experiment

To those who seemed confused that the author isn't pretending to hide his agenda or to take it with a very large grain of salt. This article is listed under the columns heading (for the column titled Good Dirt) and not the news heading of the Indy. That means it's his take on things. It should not surprise you at all.

Re: “Cyclists say their lives are at risk from road-raging motorists

Let’s break Ray’s comments down line by line…
“Most of these so-called bikers are a menace to the public.”
Most is a tricky word, is it really most cyclist or maybe just the ones that you noticed and can still remember. Do you remember every cyclist you saw who was not being a menace?
“It is time to force bikers to be licensed, carry liability insurance,”
Licensed? So at what age would you like kids to start taking a test to ride their bike? Most cyclists also have a car and also then have a license and insurance. Cyclists also don’t need a license to be ticketed by police for breaking traffic laws.
“and to pay road taxes like the rest of do.”
Road taxes don’t even pay for most of the road. Property, income and sales tax (think 2C) make up a larger portion of the funding. Plus, the large majority of cyclists own cars. They also pay the exact same taxes even when they are riding their bicycle which has the added benefit of greatly reducing the wear and tear on those roads (less potholes for everyone)
“I've seen bikers----the large majority”
What did we say about using the word majority…
“run stop signs, weave in and out of traffic”
Some cyclists break traffic laws, and they should be ticketed for, so do cars and every road user every day. Cyclist do not break traffic laws in a greater quantity just because they are cyclist (you just happen to remember them more). And no, the sample size of only the cyclist you remember doesn’t count.
“kick cars for no reason other than spite, so on and so forth.”
Let’s hope they stub their toe…that’s just rude no matter what type of transportation you choose.
