Add in some old people and a farmer's market on the weekends and you've got yourself a party.  Seriously, though, I understand the desire to reduce vehicular traffic and encourage pedestrianism and cycling, but it always bothers me when they half-ass things like this.  Just make it a road that does not allow cars.  Block it off with pylons.  Allowing cars through at 15 MPH is just asking for some road-raging asshat to run over a pedestrian or a biker.  And while you're at it, keep bikers out of roads intended for vehicular traffic.  I'm just saying that when we die, there'll be a planet for the cyclists, a planet for the walkers, and we'll all be a lot happier.

If Chicago would just build gun ranges and encourage thugs to become better shots, there would be less peripheral damage.

A good example of typical deregulation.

"What surprised me is taking away the curbs," she said. "I like the idea that everybody kind of has to watch out for everybody and have eye contact."

So now we can have texting pedestrians getting run over by texting drivers! This is clearly a win...
