In this article Peggy Schulz a lifelong Milwaukeean, bus rider and freelance writer is expressing her opinion on Southridge Mall's new plan to relocate the bus stop away from the malls' buildings. Peggy goes on to explain how even though the relocation of the bus stop is intended to keep teenagers from hanging out at the mall, it is also affecting the non-drivers, the elderly and those with disabilities who are also bus dependent shoppers as well. This article is an opinion piece, because Peggy is the one writing this article from her point of view as a bus rider. As said in the book, opinions are arguments too when the claim is backed up with reason. And in this article Peggy made a claim that the relocation of the bus stop is going to be a hindrance and shows disdain and indifference to bus riders.
This article uses a form of argument because a claim was made with reasons that can be argued against by others. I never really sat and thought that an opinion can lead to arguments, but we see it all the time in our daily lives, whether discussing a movie, our favorite food or even what choice of clothing looks best on us.
