About "Information Gap" and the ongoing debate about bike lanes on Madison:

"As to the matter of the underutilization of Madison Avenue, it might have something to do with the trolley line making a meaningful portion of it unpleasant to drive. I'm sorry you can't appreciate the ... business owners' apprehension, but ... they have good reason to not believe the deja vu comforting words they are hearing from the city." — MidtownFrank

About "Corker Slams Debt Impasse":

"Before we start singing the praises of Corker for decrying ... the debt limit fight as politically motivated, let's remember who/what this guy really is: He's a Republican who, for the most part, hews to his party's Tea-Party-tilted extremism. ... The fact he sees the debt limit issue as being a threat to his party's electoral prospects doesn't make him more of a Lincoln Republican; it just makes him more of a political opportunist (forgive the truism)." — M_Awesomeberg

About "Letters to the Editor" and "income distribution in America":

"To paraphrase Eddie Murphy, if you have $10 and somebody takes half, all you have left is $5. You just went from being able to feed two people to one of them going hungry. But if you have $10 million and somebody takes half, you still got $5 million, so you should STFU and stop complaining about your taxes." — jeff

Comment of the Week:

About "Rocky the Redbird Attacked":

"Some idiot fan always thinks they can be funny at a mascot's expense. I think the idiot fan should be thrown in with Tom the (actual) Tiger's cage at a U of M football game. I'd take a picture of that!" — Midtown Mark
