“I am totally in favor of this policy! I have a bike in the city and I would love to ride it more but I have seen too many bike / car accidents and I'm afraid to bust my face open. If there were more safe and accessible bike paths, I would definitely bike more frequently.”

“If you ride safely, cycling is not dangerous in most places. You are more likely to die from obesity related illness or slipping while walking or falling in the bathtub than from a cycling accident.”

“Are you going to pay for the lanes to be installed and then maintained and kept free of debris? Do you want to be segregated in to a 1m lane, with parked cars (and doors) on one side, and moving traffic on the other? What if you want to leave the lane and turn left? What if someone opens a car door right in front of you? What's really safer?
Contact your local League of American Bicyclists Instructor and take a Traffic Skills 101 course. You'll be surprised at how easy it is to get around on current roads, in current conditions. Seriously.”
“Yeah, these photos are poor at best. It did snow and it will snow even more. I just went to the gym and it's really not that cold.”

“The storm is lagging a bit behind predictions. The snow, from around 1am to now has been coming down at about an inch per hour. Big flakes. Not that cold. YET. The arctic blast is supposedly going to follow closely behind this blanket of snow. So their predictions of bitter cold will probably come today sometime after the snow stops.”
“You're overreacting. I am all for denouncing religious extremists, but he's just making a statement about his personal beliefs... you know, the ones we're all allowed to have or not have per the first amendment. As long as he's not trying to force the rest of us to follow along, I don't really care.”

“He should keep his personal beliefs personal - they have no business on the football field.”
“Yes, this sounds racist and awful. That being said... Mother's is one of the trashiest bars in town. No one should ever ever go there. These gentlemen were from out of town, so I can't blame them. Any establishment that still has thong contests should be shut down for the greater good of the city. Barf.”
“This country has an obsession with beauty and perfection. Body image issues follow women throughout their entire lives and negative body image is beginning to affect girls at very early ages. We need to change the way we look at women. We need to stand up to main stream media and tell them that the current idea of beauty is totally false. Tell the media to embrace women and men of all shapes, sizes, races and ages.
If you're in Chicago, join the Chicago Chapter of the National Organization for women as we discuss the documentary 'America the Beautiful' with representatives from Playboy and Mary Kay. For more information, visit the Chicago NOW Wordpress Blog.”

“same old story, i can't 'embrace' all women without being able to discern for myself what's pleasant to my own eyes.

“feel better about yourself now?
I like photo #3.”
“This is why it's critical to pay attention to which judges we vote for. It's easier to promote the good judges than it is to stop the crooked cops. Make sure to oppose Fleming in the next election and make your voice heard when Abbate goes to court. Chicago NOW will be at his first hearing. Find out what how you too can participate. http://chicagonow.wordpress.com/”
“This is the message of the NOW movement.... I don't know if I can even call it that. The city is ours. WE make it. Now, if we can only learn to harness the energy of the public. I refuse to just sit back and feel angry or lament over drinks with friends anymore.”

“are you talking about NOW (National Organization for Women)? If not tell me what Chicago NOW you are referring to”
“Chicago NOW wants YOU to write and call Dorothy Brown, Judge Fleming himself, the Mayor's Office, the Circuit Court and others to speak against abusive cop, Anthony Abbate and incompetent judge of the year, Judge John Fleming.
