I'm staking out the "who cares, just build them already, but don't tell me they're going to have a huge impact on what ails this city" ground.

Again, no one is claiming this. The only claims I have seen regarding bike lanes is that they will increase bike ridership and decrease bike/automobile accidents - both objectively good goals worth pursuing for their own sake. This 'both sides exaggerate' schtick is exactly what I meant by a fictitious middle ground. Anyway, don't mean to pick on you, you often have worthwhile contributions to the discussion, I just get a little irritated when you and certain others here go into your plague on both their houses routine. Like other forms of wankery, it feels good when you do it, but eventually you'll go blind.
