Election Day came and went and everything was pretty predictable: Gov. Hochul, a Democrat, and Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-Long Island) won their respective primaries. And there were few upsets in the Assembly, as the Times reported. So let's get to the important news from yesterday:

Pffft, there goes car culture.
