Monday’s Headlines: Memorial Day Edition

12:03 AM EDT on May 29, 2023

We’re going to take today off to honor Memorial Day, sad as always, but especially so this year when 13 cyclists and three dozen pedestrians have been killed.

    • Parents in Brooklyn want safer streets near schools. (WABC)
    • It's time for a little criminal mischief ... in Teheran! (Radio Free Europe)
    • We must stop subsidizing driving by subsidizing parking. (Planetizen)
