    The Vacca Post story has a bad link.

  • Notice the NYPost has disabled commenting? Too many people calling them out on their performance in Boston.

    Can the Internet stop linking to the Post already? Those guys don’t deserve a single penny anymore.

    In fact, we should start boycotting all advertisers in the post. It is truly an embarrassment, and their treatment of the Boston tragedy unambiguously exposed them for the dregs of society they are.

  • mmm, i see some value in maybe linking to rebuttal/media-criticism pieces, and in just alerting folks to the bull—the post is very popular with lots of folks, and will continue to be, and here’s a nice opportunity to write a critical letter to the editor.

  • > The Post and an Anonymous NYPD Source Set Out to Embarrass Sadik-Khan

    I think we should set out to embarrass the NYPD, hold up signs at Delancey and Essex during the morning rush showing drivers passing how many speeding tickets they didn’t give out.

    So an anonymous police source rings up the Post to do a hit job on JSK. They go with it, and dispatch a reporter to question her at her own home. And the hook for the resulting non-story is that JSK is paranoid.

    Guess that makes sense if you work for or read the Post.

  • They have been disabled because of the Subway shoving incident a couple months back.

  • Larry Littlefield

    They are doing it again. Selling the future. THERE IS NO SUPLUS!

    Is the MTA debt going down by $40 million? Is it going down by $40 million if borrowing for entirely new infrastructure, such as the Second Avenue Subway and East Side Access, is excluded?

    No, the MTA is continuing to sink deeper and deeper into debt faster and faster just to pay for ongoing normal replacement, which is really just maintenance, and the “reimbursable” operating expenses that are tangentially related to the alleged capital projects (like painting).

    NY Post offers us overt example of abuse of power and outright cronyism, and it’s a non-story? Really?

    You think that if you or I called the local precinct and said, “Hey, my neighbor has some thingy in his window, and I think he’s spying on me”, that they’d even bother to check it out, let alone find some judge who owed someone at city hall a favor to sign a search warrant and barge into the guy’s apartment?

    This is like something out of the USSR. JSK couldn’t have contacted the building’s mgmt, and made an attempt to find out who lives there and talk to the guy? Why bother, when we can simply pull a few strings and sic the NYPD on him?

    Way over the top abuse here, and it’s pathetic that most of you are willing to just overlook this and give her a pass.

    One other event worth noting occurred on Sunday – a Mercedes collided with a livery vehicle in midtown Manhattan. The Mercedes jumped the curb and crashed into Tiffany’s. Miraculously, no pedestrians were injured, which is incredible considering the high volume of people in the area.

    Sadly, these crashes have become so routine that there was just a short blurb about it in today’s Post. No mention about who was at fault or if criminality was involved.
