Yes, there were definitely mixed messages there, but I consider the source. The Freep in former times had to have been a bastion of support for the Detroit motor industry. Its surprising that there was anything at all.

The comments were almost more interesting though, One man said "Makin he shortie ride in winta be criminal". And they got into a quarrel on whether a stop sign with a white border around it means that it's a "rolling stop" sign.
