Re: “MoDOT Tosses Cyclists Over the Handlebars

I'm a little late in putting my 2 cents in on this topic. I'd like to know why, on the way back from KC on highway 13, there were Share The Road signs every 1-1.5 miles with a picture of a bicycle? I'm driving 65-70 MPH...how do I share the road with any bicycle? Where are these bicycles going to be? I drove for 39 miles watching these signs and wondering what I'd do if I came upon a bicycle in my lane too fast to avoid it.
What a total waste of taxpayer money!!!

Re: “The Truth About Tony

He's a kid living in his Mom's basement; but he's still liable for libel if he's calling her a drunk.

I've looked this his blog and it's mostly just garbage.
Interesting if he ever does try to get involved in politics or even look for a job; a little research and any employer can see what kind of a person they're hiring.
Sorry Tony.

Re: “A not-independent analyst might have skewed local media coverage of Sprint

Dan Hesse -- If you want us to support the hometown company, you'd better start having the hometown company live up to the standards of its hometown.

Sprint will claim plausible deniability and blame it on poor journalism, but your officers read the articles where this fraud was positioned as an independent consultant. At what point does Sprint bear responsibility to correct that misperception? At what point do you recognize that this consultant is, at best, ethically challenged and disassociate yourself from him? Or is that the type of person with whom Sprint does business? Legally, Spint may be in the clear (debatable), but ethically it is not.

Come to think of it, how complicit is Sprint in this fraud? Did you feed him talking points? How often did you refer "journalists" to him as an "independent" consultant? To what other sources do you refer journalists, or is this your go-to-guy? Was this part of a pump-and-dump stock price scheme, mere market manipulation, or ineptitude? You better get your ducks in a row and come up with good answers for the SEC and the FTC.

And if you're arrogant enough to say that it is standard industry practice, then you should just fold up shop right now as that is evidence that you've lost your business ethics and leadership.

Your hometown expects better.

Re: “MoDOT Tosses Cyclists Over the Handlebars

"MoDOT already includes community feedback in setting priorities and providing input for its projects, Briggs says. 'Typically, bike-ped needs rank pretty low . . . '"

1. There are two million bicyclists in Missouri. We saw almost half a million of them out in person at the recent Tour of Missouri. So if MoDOT's community feedback is finding that "bike-ped needs rank pretty low", it sounds more like an indictment of MoDOT's methods of gathering community feedback than the fact that there is no community support.

2. And that is not even mentioning the 25-30% of Missourians with no driver's license (over 10% of adults). And the 8.3% of Missouri households with no car. Perhaps MoDOT's community feedback programs are failing to reach these taxpaying citizens or meet their needs?

3. To be specific, in the case of the Paseo Bridge, Kansas City area citizens have sent in over 3000 letters and emails at different stages of the public input process. The amount of public feedback on the issue of bicycle & pedestrian accommodation dwarfs the amount received for any other aspect of the project.

Yet right now MoDOT has not made a commitment to spend even one cent of the quarter billion dollar Paseo Bridge project to provide a way for people on foot or on bicycle to cross the Missouri River. (To their credit they found a clever way to potentially fit 10 feet of space for a bike/ped path on the bridge deck. However they are not even willing to spend 0.1% of the project's budget to make that potential 10 feet become a real bike/ped path. MoDOT has knack for making pacifying gestures like that, that cost them nothing but also turn out to amount to nothing in the end.)

In a time when gas prices are well over $3/gallon, greenhouse gas emissions are a global concern, and cities and states across the U.S. and world are re-discovering the value of building roads and streets for people, not just automobiles, MoDOT needs to remember this:

It is the Department of TRANSPORTATION, not just the Department of Single Occupant Automobiles.

Re: “Did Sen. Chris Koster plant Molly Korth Williams as a fake candidate for Missouri attorney general?

Well researched?? Last time I checked Jeff Harris is a REPRESENTATIVE, not a senator. Nice try, though. But yes, I absolutely do agree that Koster is a slimy political opportunist. I hope that Dems will realize that nothing about his voting record indicates that he is a Democrat.

Re: “Did Sen. Chris Koster plant Molly Korth Williams as a fake candidate for Missouri attorney general?

Surely Koster wouldn't do that. I mean he was loyal to the Republican Party and has treated everyone with respect. He has absolutely NO ego and I can't believe that he would plant a question ala Hillary Clinton. Get a grip Koster, do the right thing and drop out.

Re: “Martin: Cordish Is Drunk on Power

I had the pleasure of meeting the devils aid(Allen Hicks sp?)the director of construction for the cordish Group last year.That was when they we believe tried to dismantell our little business.He was not shy about letting us know that thier view of economics 101 is not that competition is good for the market but there view is if im not here you (the customer) will have to go there.They were very addement to let us know that they were very well represented in jeff city(i can only assume somebodies kid is now going to harvard instead of cmsu for his paid for education that his father or mother sold thier sole for, (by the way hope you burn in hell.)Also he was very forthcoming that they were in bed with my mayor at that time(kay)I can take that two ways both of which make me want do blow chow.The first i take personally as a tax payer the second I,I,I I cant even talk about as a 45 year old active heterosexuall who aslo used to like porn until that thought is now stuck in my head. Anyway i hope everybody likes ted's and macfatts and flying saucer because if they get it thier way that all we are going to get to eat around here for a long time.Mark my words one way or another we are going to eat it. Thank you,signed working hard for you!
