    Re: The Reality Outside Your Windshield

    This is why Cornell needs a major redesign or complete elimination. I watched a man wait in the crosswalk to get to the Midway while 20-25 cars passed by him, completely oblivious. Six lanes of fast moving traffic have no place in our parks.

    I was confused at first by the headline as presented here. An article calling for drivers to take some responsibility? In the Tribune? But of course it’s not the Trib itself, but the Lake County News-Sun. Commendable change from the usual anti-pedestrian, anti-bike, anti-transit, anti-anything-but-cars bias, in any case.
