    Why Won’t the Tribune Run Active Trans Letter Debunking Their Latest Anti-Bike Op-Ed?

    Possibly because all the bike people have followed through on their frequent vows to cancel their Tribune subscriptions, leaving the readership full of suburbanites. You write to your audience.

    The RedEye article about car rental isn’t anything specific to Chicago, it’s just generally a hassle renting a car when you’re under 25. Back when I was under 25, I was so happy when I got a job that would let me use the corp contract for personal rentals, as the contract specified no young renter fees.
