As a transplanted "region ratt" (Lake-to-Marion Co.), I grew up having access to Lake Michigan's beaches, even with the steel mills. If the State is reclaiming that shoreline, then the beachfront properties claimed by individual homeowners would appear to fall in the remaining 25% Rep. Visclosky has outlined in his plan. Allow them ownership along with responsibility for maintaining their beach line (cleaning, erosion maintenance, etc.). "With great power comes great responsibility..."
So sorry to hear, Big Girl. Entitlement vs. Right has no winners. It helps me to: 1) take nothing personally (it's not about you; it's all about them); 2) make no assumptions; 3) be impeccable with your word; and 4) always do the best you can. (courtesy of Miguel Ruiz's 4 Agreements). This helps sometimes in my navigating congested roadways with my tour passengers both on my bus and SUV. (Other drivers yell at our Big White Bus, too, and we have tourists and visitors on board who are SPENDING $$$'s in our city! This makes NO sense to me.) Be assured I'll be on the lookout for you and other urban cyclists :-)
I absolutely LOVE Comet's Bike Shop, from one miniature Xmas village enthusiast to another. Cycling in the cold reminds me of biking during my college years. Ooh, that quick intake of cold air that makes your eyes water. Thanks for the memories, Big Girl!
