    WTF? Every single businessowner on Michigan Avenue would scream bloody murder if they tried this nonsense

    While I usually hate street blocking protests, I sympathize with this one. Rahm is giving these folks the “bum’s rush” and blaming in on the need for a bike lane. What a craven cowardly piece of shit.

    Ooops – the government gravy train for CTA/CDOT/Metra/RTA/Pace/IDOT might get derailed at last.

    The blind hatred of cars and drivers espoused by Streetsblog and Active Transportation Alliance does not sell at all on the South/West Sides.
