The Journal has a regularly featured column every week called Road Warrior. Larry Sandler answers questions from people about construction and traffic issues, and also highlights interesting news and upcoming projects. It's actually a pretty useful column, and is written to be pretty fun. Recently he wrote about new bike lanes that are being painted on many local streets:
Hold on there skippy. $80,000 from the federal government for lines on local streets? Are you kidding me? This is why I get pissed at guys like Sensenbrenner. This is the sort of pork that doesn't belong in highway bills. I know that it benefits me... but I don't care. If the city wanted more bike lanes, let the city pay for it. Some guy in Montanna doesn't need to help fun lines on streets in Milwaukee.
