    On the horse carriage issue, there was also an op-ed by Liam Neeson on the NYT: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/15/opinion/carriages-belong-in-central-park.html

    If a Jedi Master says so, these are the carriages we are looking for. 🙂

    I don’t want to see the horse carriages in Central Park replaced by dinky fake-vintage electric cars driven by costumed charlatans.

    If they insist on getting horses out of the park, then they should be replaced by electric horses. We’ve got a ton of tech entrepreneurs in this city. Build me an electric horse!

    Ha! The Hummer ran into the bus for causes unknown? How about because it was going the WRONG WAY down 1st Ave?

  • TomG

    Can’t wait to dodge the piles of glowing electric horse crap.

    The horse robot will poop organic compostable faux-caca; no-skid type. Ride on.
