As someone who lives on a brick street, I was particularly interested in Bill Kemp's 'revised and enlarged' column on brick streets in our area. His characteristically well-informed piece made me appreciate our remaining brick streets and bemoan the loss of so many others.

As a dedicated road cyclist who recently hosted a family visitor, I was taken by the current relevance of an 1859 visitor's assessment of Bloomington's roads as 'the terror of strangers and the disgust of her citizens.' As I ride those roads, as they rattle my teeth and batter my bike and joints, I too see them as not 'an honor and an ornament', but as the city's 'greatest discredit.'
