La Menage a Prince?

Hi kids.

Well, you may have noticed one local political issue that hasn't gotten much coverage here - the proposed three-laning of Prince Avenue, in all or in part, depending on who you listen to.

To be honest, we don't have a whole heck of a lot to say on the matter. It's being covered very well by other local nontraditional media gurus like Hilary and Jmac, to say nothing of the extensive coverage given to it by Flagpole.

Also, discussion on three-laning Prince inevitably turns to discussion on bike lanes, which tends to make that little vein on the crack editorial staff's foreheads start throbbing.

But, if you want our opinion, read this. We couldn't have said it any better ourselves.

I would have thought they would learn their lesson from Baxter Street! It is a nightmare now and has greatly increased the traffic on Broad Street too. Lumpkin I feel a little better about. The situation is the same but those lanes were so small...

WHY are they trying this? What is their motivation? It can't be to make things better cause we all know that won't happen. What are they getting out of it?
