Reader: Drivers shouldn't bitch about cyclists just because they're fat, lazy and want to text
The comments are still pouring in on a Comment of the Day alleging that Colorado cyclists are douchy and selfish, with an increasing number defending those who prefer two wheels over four. Here's a particularly passionate example.

Everyone complaining is fat and lazy. Rides bikes whenever you can. Just cause you wanna text while you drive and not worry about getting your ass sued because you weren't paying attention is no reason to hate bikers. Not all of them disrespect the traffic laws. I commend people that wanna ride bikes over driving cars. It bothers me that so many people are against it. Maybe we would have clear skies over denver instead of a huge brown cloud. #crymeariver.
