    “Lander Blasts F Train Service.”

    Note to New York politicians. You are in no position to “blast” the government. You, the predecessors who were part of your political organization, and your union and contractor supporters ARE the government.

    Instead of blasting, they should be meeting among themselves and deciding if they have taken all they can and need to give something back. Or not.

    Leave the blasting to those unaffiliated with those who have done this to us.

    Brad Lander always struck me as kind of a cheeseball, but do you really want to police political rhetoric to that extent? It’s quite feasible that somebody could be elected who more or less agrees with you.

    Blasting the government, MTA, DOT, etc. is a great start, but actually doing something about it is the real test.

    “It’s quite feasible that somebody could be elected who more or less agrees with you.”

    Well after 35 years you sort of give up on that sort of thing.

    What I don’t like about it is that the MTA was set up exactly so that politicians would have someone to blast about the consequences of their decisions, make to the benefit of their past backers.
    MTA officials get their position and perks in exchange for holding their tongues with regard to what they really want to say in response.
