    You think you don’t like bag holders Cuomo and DeBlasio now, wait until yet another paper asset bubble stops throwing off gushers of tax revenues and tens of thousands of hard working serfs stop moving here to be exploited.

    See Christie, New Jersey, Malloy, Connecticut, Rauer, Illinois, Emmanuel, Chicago, etc.

    Of course they could try to avoid that fate by leveling with people on the effect of the past on the future, telling the entitled they have to give something back, and addressing things. But nooooo. Just keep sweeping under the run until they and theirs can get to Washington, or Florida.

    Interesting contrast between the MTA’s foldable seats and the foldable seats in the Paris Metro:

    Paris: seats fold individually and users decide whether the car is too crowded to sit. In my limited experience (one month), it seemed to work fine. It was interesting to see how when a certain density was reached, everyone on a foldable seat stood almost simultaneously. (I won’t comment on whether New Yorkers be civilized enough.)

    NYC: lockable benches which require transit workers to fold and unfold each rush hour.

    Why am I not surprised?
