“ Sometimes I get confused where the lanes are because the paint is faded. So maybe brighter paint.”

“ Bike lanes would be good. They seem to be sort of not connected and disjointed.”

A city grid pattern west of Iowa would be nice.

We need something like the Bay Area Rapid Transit(BART) that would go underneath the Kansas River. Except it should only go north and end at a brick wall underneath Johnnies.

Brighter paint? Heck, just paint would be a huge improvement. Something's fishy in that department, methinks.

"and more horses" - autie

"Herewith, three facts about horses: 1) They're cute. 2) They're edible. 3) You probably haven't eaten any lately because of fact No. 1."

Except we can forget to tell the people in the Merc...

Just one transportation improvement? I have several. First Frankie is right and lines and curbs should be regularly painted. Second, enforcement needs to be stepped up and help educate drivers when they fail to follow the laws. Third, implement some sort of public education and driving refresher courses (i.e. how to use a roundabout and when to use signals regarding a roundabout). The majority of issues I see in this town is that drivers fail to use turn signals, drive slow in the left lanes on hwys, do not fully enter the center turn lanes and block the flow of traffic, and worst of all too many drivers turning onto multi-lane streets cut across several lanes instead of turning into the closest lane and then making a safe lane change.

Teach people how to navigate a roundabout. Your left-hand blinker has no business in a roundabout. Right signal before the exit you intend to take. It's quite easy.

Which one is dumber, a horse or a chicken? Hey Roe, you been hanging out at the Kaw lately? I bet our old friend is still waiting for you and Hollis Brown.

They have those on the Seattle waterfront. They're pretty cool.

"Mr. Zog's Sex Wax works great on one of those."

I used to use that stuuf to wax my board. Now I just wax my dolphin. Artie, why wasn't I invited? It better not have been a Compound Gang reunion. I'll be terribly hurt.

Where is Merrill with his post about walking trails and such? I was expecting him to be first. OK how to improve things in Lawrence....oh heck there are too many to list here. But I think the lanes need to be painted, for sure.
