Joe Dowd: Cuomo’s pork barrel not greasing Long Island

Ironic but true: The Sheridan Expressway is named for a guy who died in a car crash. Until this week I figured it honored a Civil War general. The little interstate bisecting the Bronx is actually named for engineer Arthur V. Sheridan, a Bronx public works commissioner and Robert Moses loyalist. It runs just over a mile, connecting the Cross Bronx and Bruckner expressways. It also decimated a South Bronx neighborhood, but progress has its price. Some neighborhoods, frankly, need to get destroyed in order for Long Islanders to get upstate. Now, Moses-wannabe Andrew Cuomo wants to bring the Sheridan crashing down, a $1.8 billion demolition-green-space river-walk extravaganza that will undoubtedly gridlock Bronx traffic for years.

Caddell, who lives in Charleston, is perhaps best known for helping Jimmy Carter win the 1976 Presidential race. He is also remembered for having collaborated with his friend Warren Beatty on the 1998 satire “Bulworth.” In that film, a kamikaze candidate abandons the usual talking points and excoriates both the major political parties and the media; voters love his unconventionality, and he becomes improbably popular.

Tech News Keywords:

NEW YORK – (AP) — New York’s attorney general has issued a warning about price-gouging during the snowstorm. Eric Schneiderman says consumers should contact his office about “excessive increases” in the price of goods and services. Examples include food, water, gas, generators, hotels and transportation. The price-gouging law also could apply to snow removal and equipment, salt and contractor services for storm-related damage. In February, Schneiderman’s office announced a settlement with a hotel near Kennedy Airport that price gouged more than 300 guests during a 2016 ice storm. After Superstorm Sandy, the office sued more than 50 gas stations for price-gouging. Those settlements totaled more than $3,000 in penalties and costs.
