Congestion Pricing Op-Art: The Joke’s on Whom?

Cartoonist, writer and former Ford Motor Company employee Bruce McCall offers this "Wouldn't it be funny if.." rendition of post-congestion pricing Manhattan, from Sunday's New York Times (click here for the full illustration). As with his confounding and flip Atlantic Yards illo from a year ago, it's hard to discern what McCall is trying to say here.

Or is it? One Streetsblog tipster, referring to the piece as "egregious," wrote of the Times: "They really don't get it." Yet the NYT has published numerous pro-pricing editorials as well.
