    Anyone who wants to retain the tiniest sliver of hope for humanity should not reading the comments on the Daily News site for that story about the cyclist who died.

    @c661ddb94bcffdc2c6124e349eafdc77:disqus I read them and thought about posting how the daily news contributes to a culture that honks at cyclists merely for excising.  Behavior that is not just disrespectful, but deadly.  My life is endangered because a bunch of editors at the daily news want to get to the next red light 5 seconds sooner.

    @c661ddb94bcffdc2c6124e349eafdc77:disqus , those are the “real New Yorkers” who inform the Daily News’s editorialists, like Alex Nazaryan.  Thanks for the warning, though — it’s sad enough already.

    All about helmets all the time while people are getting crushed by cars. I’m so sorry for her friends and family. 

  • The daily news make me so mad.  I hate that we contribute page views to the daily news terrible, hateful bike articles.  I always end up clicking on it and getting mad.

    Well, that City Hall bit about Cuomo, Walder, and Bloomberg is revealing. Guess Cuomo really did drive Walder out. Hard to imagine any reasonable person thinking the mayor and MTA should not coordinate. I had a feeling the premature shutdown of the subway was Cuomo trying to posture.

    @c661ddb94bcffdc2c6124e349eafdc77:disqus : tabloids are aimed at morons and the odd sociopath, all thinking their little John Galts. No surprise there.

    Yes, I have made it my policy to ignore every Daily News and NY Post link I see on this site and others–they do not deserve my page views at all.

    As far as Cuomo is concerned, it’s been clear for a while that he is anti-transit and anti-NYC.  He is also an extremely petty and conniving politician who goes toe-to-toe with the lizards in Albany at their own (destructive) game. I’m not surprised at all.
