This Should Lead the News

…but it won’t. For the first time during this pandemic the true end is in sight, but it takes time to vaccinate a country the size of the US. So of course the selfish citizenry led by some willing inept state and local governments will make sure to kill a few more people than necessary to prove a point about freedom”.

Great Old School NYC Subway Ads


As someone who took the subway from birth and lived through this period they really made me laugh. After decades of neglect the city made the subway a priority and it shows. Of course like cleaning up Times Square and crime reduction these things were being done long before Rudy Gulliani became mayor, but he still gets credit for it to this day. What started under Koch took off under Dinkins (who finally started getting credit years later). Also a reminder that while the last year was tough, the subway is cleaner and safer than it was just a few years ago and there is no reason to think it won’t snap back to that those levels as we move on from COVID. All that said, major investment is needed to expand and improve the system and we have a chance to do something that has not been done in generations.
