@ resident

I know, but it's been removed from the front page where it's been reposted (identical article) with the thread locked, as if someone wants the comments to the original posting removed a direct link to the front page, in other words "burried" somewhere off the front page.

This is what bothers me. It's tantamount to burying the comments. People coming to Paloaltoonline will most likely now only see the article on the front page, with the thread locked, and with no direct link to the comments by Midtown residents who like the plan of a bike trail along Matadero Creek.

All fixed. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We had some coding issues. Comment-away!

Actually, I wish the trail could be longer, through Midtown and Barron Park until it could go no further.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
