Re: Coneheads: "No parking in front of MY house"

You're overthinking this, folks. All you need to do is remind Arturo that his entire political philosophy rests on a series of unproven assertions. Just say, "no, I don't believe that people are basically omniscient Vulcans," and POOF! There goes economic libertarianism in a puff of smoke.

Re: North Sherman Avenue Proposal

Looks like Frugal Muse in the Northgate Shopping Center is going to close. Don't know why. :( It's tough for bookstores generally. With how active they've been in opposing the street reconfiguration I'm sure they saw it as the last straw. On the other hand, the store's been running on minimal staff...

Re: Coneheads: "No parking in front of MY house"

So you're suggesting that this situation is the product of undue favoritism or kickbacks or something? I don't think that's what's going on at all. I think it's just incompetence. You're the one who thinks the police and city government ought to be enforcing every violation of the exact letter of e...

Re: North Sherman Avenue Proposal

Ninja's biggest problem with my absurd little story is that there's a law on malfunctioning stoplights. That really puts a smile on my face.

Don't ever change, Counselor.

FUTURE NEWS: Madison lawyer impersonator Lionel "Ninja" Hutz died of septicemia today after a week-long battle with internal injuries suffered at a malfunctioning traffic light six days ago. The traffic light malfunctioned and was stuck on red when Hutz pulled up to the intersection. Despi...

Re: North Sherman Avenue Proposal

I don't think you understand what's going on here. I assume the cops have been instructed to ignore passing violations on Sherman. Why would they start enforcing the law at my request? What are you even talking about? You're clearly paranoid that they'll suddenly and randomly going to start enforci...

Re: North Sherman Avenue Proposal

So if you're on a rural road with a solid yellow and a car stalled in your lane, you cannot pass it? According to all your statements, this is the case. Make an exception for this, and you make an exception for others. Here's my public challenge for Lionel Hutz: If he posts a signed affidavit from ...

Re: No More First Person Shooter Simulation Production In WI

We are deeply saddened by many of the responses. As reflective of the vast majority of supporters of FPSS's the response indicate a lack of impulse control, rationalization, hostility and dissociative personality disorder. Then again, we (royal) aren't the ones who rhapsodized about programmers com...

Re: North Sherman Avenue Proposal

Oh, wait, no, it actually says: (3) Notwithstanding sub. (2), when lanes have been marked or posted for traffic moving in a particular direction or at designated speeds, the operator of a vehicle shall drive in the lane designated. Is a TWLTL "for traffic moving in a particular direction or at...

Re: North Sherman Avenue Proposal

For all his quoting of statutes, Perry Mason seems to have overlooked the crucial one that proves he's an idiot: 346.13(2) Upon a 2-way roadway which is divided into 3 lanes the operator of a vehicle may not drive in the center lane except when overtaking and passing another vehicle where the roadwa...

Re: North Sherman Avenue Proposal

Drove the whole length of the road, from Sherman & Fordem to the library, yesterday at quarter to five. It took four minutes and my speed only dropped below 30 when stopping for a red light and a pedestrian. It didn't even take a week for traffic to adjust. As for all the armchair traffic enforc...

Re: North Sherman Avenue Proposal

Monroe St., Willy St, and the Atwood/Schenk's area come to mind. Willy/Atwood is a perfect example of the problem with Ninja's fundamental premise. The commercial renaissance in that corridor had far less to do with the number of cars driving through than the growing wealth of the neighborhood. If ...

Re: North Sherman Avenue Proposal

Two years ago, one of my financial goals was try to change my spending habits and make all of my purchases local. Being on the northside, I wanted to shift my spending to northside businesses to benefit my neighborhood and community. I was very successful, and able to shift my gas, some of my groce...
