I'm disappointed in the overall tone of this editorial. I get that it really isn't about bicycles but about the idiocy of TIF funding for private projects but most people are going to read it as being about bicycling and not just bicycling but a rant against cyclist riding on the road. Now that in itself isn't what disappoints me. What disappoints me is that the way your little satire was written it comes across more as justification or rationalization for someone macing cyclists. I can see how someone not use to satire could read this and feel really justified in buzzing a cyclist on the road or even following them to a parking area and assaulting them. I really think an apology is in order here.
