Letters: Feet to fire

Ed Kahn backs me up on asking harder questions of the county departments for the ongoing series, and another whiny golfer gets his comeuppance from the editors, who hang a lame pun in his headline. Poor slob.

hey steven , how come no coment on Paul Diemer's letter on the roundabout issue? he raises a point that has yet to be addressed by anyone on either side of the current debate.

You're right that no one's put it forward before, but that doesn't make it any less lame, I'm afraid.

oh come on , address the point he makes dont label his reasoning lame and walk away, tell us (and him) just why he is wrong.

OK, presumably you're talking about the anecdote about having difficulty pulling a fifth wheel through the roundabout rather than the first two paragraphs.

So tell me, do think that a roundabout on a state highway was not designed to accomodate 50-foot semi rigs? I think it clearly is, and it clearly has to be by law.

If the intersention is designed to accomodate 50-foot semi rigs, then why was this driver supposedly having a problem with it?

Charitable conclusion: He saw the roundabout and disengaged his brain.

Lame. If one cannot easily handle the features of a state highway, one should not be driving.
