    Also in that state across the river, a taxi driver “lost control” and killed his passengers John Nash (the Nobel laureate mathematician made more famous when his story was told in “A Beautiful Mind”) and his wife.

    What a totally pointless way for such a brilliant person to die.

    Surprisingly good funding ideas from Rodriquez. I was scared for a second by the really dumb lede in the Crain’s article, but that is probably the magazine’s fault.

    Still doesn’t touch on the two really obvious things, which should be in the state legislature’s power: (1) cut labor costs. Sunset archaic positions and work rules. (2) Find ways to control construction costs.

    Strange writeup by NY1 of a strange move by TLC. It reads like they think cabbies have no control over whether their vehicles run reds. Which would be a shame! If only cab drivers (and only they) had some simple and effortless way to avoid running red lights. Something straightforward. Like moving the right foot a few inches.

    Who signs off on this anti-safety move by TLC?
