I'm not sure what precipitated his rants against bicyclists but now he just can't pass up the opportunity to rip us and apparently he has an audience that agrees. He's irritated that the city has a biking coordinator and that the Twin Cities are known for outstanding accommodations to cyclists. Any time talk of further improvements come up, he complains. Too much money spent on too few is a large part of his argument I believe. That and other typical selfish opinions toward sharing the road.

Fortunately, I no longer live and ride there but I'm guessing he hasn't helped the riding environment. Should we react to him or just let it be? Do you try to organize boycotts against advertisers or are we then over reacting?
He is covered by freedom of speech laws. But at the same time, he is instigating a certain segment of the public(I mean 'cagers', not you), which could go too far. Are any of his comments online?
