    Re: Sadik-Khan article:

    “The bottom line is you’ve done exactly what we’ve asked. Road safety
    statistics show that your efforts are bearing fruit. You are saving lots
    of lives and making the city better,” [Bloomberg] said before ceding the
    microphone to her.

    You can bet somewhere someone who is still alive because of her is bitching about the changes she has made too. Such a backwards world we live in, that someone who saves lives and makes us all safer is an object of derision, while we reward sociopathic irresponsibility such as speed and road rage.
