    If you want to read something depressing, check out the comments on the Hoboken bikeshare article. Granted, I doubt many of them actually live in Hoboken or Jersey City, but the level of dialogue there is at a 7th grade level, with wild misconceptions about what is happening. It makes the PPW dialogue looks downright civil and well-informed.
