    Malls have been built everywhere possible, NJ is now littered with old dying malls, and shopping is going on-line. What to do about it? Hey… let’s build an EVEN BIGGER mall on wetlands, and have taxpayers foot the bill? What words do we have for this, other than “inept” and “corrupt”?

    I think corrupt. Christie pushed for this. He didn’t have to. At the same time he killed ARC. Imagine instead of subsidizing a fucking mall for billions, he instead pushed for ARC Alt-G. But instead, a fucking mall, with very poor transit access (despite being a major sports destination).

    Would it be possible to make the posting date visible on the homepage? So headlines would read “Today’s Headlines for Date” or something like that?

  • Something of that nature is on the post-launch to-do list.

    Deluded quote of the day, from the bottom Advance link:
    “So however we got here, parking is a shrinking commodity on Staten Island. We can’t just be giving spots away to private entities.”

    Kevin’s comment:
    By “private entities” the author was referring to car-share companies. But he is apparently OK with giving away for zero price valuable public property to private entities such as private car owners.

    Here’s an idea: Let us not give away valuable public property for nothing. There is a name for that. It is called “Socialism.” Instead, let’s use free-market capitalism to set a price for these car driver’s parking spots.
