    “Obama Endorses Manhattan Road Pricing”. Is that tongue in cheek, or are we looking at different articles? The one I saw only says that Obama apologized to the president of Iran (cue the outrage on Fox News!) for NYC’s traffic.

    As the Daily News gets more and more reasonable, the comments section gets more and more hilarious. The comments section on the article about the TA poll basically reads as if you tasked a class of third-graders to write an essay about why they don’t like the boogeyman.

    The political narrative that has de Blasio on the far left and Lhota on the center-right is such a steaming crock; de Blasio is a little to the left of Lhota, mostly because of human rights issues (i.e., de Blasio respects human rights). If this race were only about transportation, Lhota might almost be the better candidate, at least if he didn’t hitch his wagon to coddling feudal suburbanites.

    no link about the motorcyclists vs Range Rover road rage story that’s all over the news right now?

    I am less likely to follow links from this site in the future, after following that misleading link.

    Lhota looks about as comfortable on that bike as an atheist at church.
