We take pride in our work here at Patch and always strive to bring our readers interesting news. However, we must admit, sometimes the most interesting part of a great Patch story is the comments from readers that it sparks.

But yippeedoodle we got those Bike Lanes painted on now to increase the number of customers, right?
