Joe Dowd: Chris Christie and I share a foul indignity

Tech News Keywords: , , , ,

Chris Christie and I have something in common: We’ve both been booed at a Mets game. I’ve never closed a state beach or a major Hudson River crossing, but I, like Christie, share a foul-ball scandal. By now you’ve seen the video from Citi Field: A pop-up slices up and out of play behind the Mets dugout. Christie, seated in the lower field boxes (where else?

It was the same impish glee he displayed hugging Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones during a nationally televised playoff game. Christie was a guest in Jerry’s private box, because the governor is Jerry’s friend and you’re not.... Read More

The builders of the first commercial airplane couldn’t have foreseen the crushed knees and the splattered salad dressings that their machine would visit on the world. “Hitherto it is questionable if all the mechanical inventions yet made have lightened the day’s toil of any human being,” John Stuart Mill wrote in the “Principles of Political Economy” (1848), and the precept holds for recent innovations, too.

The Q58 bus runs between Bushwick, Ridgewood and Flushing, usually in a forwardly direction. Wednesday night, its rookie driver put the 20-ton vehicle into neutral instead of park and stepped off the bus, which promptly careened – downhill and backward – along Palmetto Street, bouncing off six cars and into a church at Knickerbocker Avenue. Fortunately, no one was badly hurt. It could have been far worse. Is there a more perfect allegory for the state of the MTA in this the “Summer of Hell?” The MTA, including our own Long Island Rail Road, is on a backward collision course with a total meltdown.

A couple of weeks ago, at Trump Tower, on the same spot where Donald Trump announced his Presidential bid, Eric Danziger, the C.E.O. of Trump Hotels, formally launched a new line of three-star hotels, called American Idea, which will cater to lower-income, rural areas of the country. It was the most blatant instance yet of the Trump family’s profiting from its political power—in this case, by shifting from its long-standing focus on luxury markets in order to make money from the very demographic that put Trump in the White House. Within the hotel industry, the event raised eyebrows for another reason: it was unbelievably haphazard. Danziger, though a veteran of the industry, had almost nothing to show his audience.

Long Island’s future hangs in the balance with a decision about a third track to be made by a little known, three-member board comprised of representatives of the governor, senate and assembly. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority Board on May 24 approved a $1.95 billion amendment to fund a third track and various projects associated with it.

Last month the New York State Department of Transportation reported that our bi-county region would receive some $204 million for various construction projects. There are any number of problems with that total including the fact that the projects under actual consideration for funding won’t even add up to that modest number. In addition, the dollars allocated for Nassau-Suffolk roads are down from previous years, continuing a long slide on funds earmarked for maintenance. Nor should the region expect a reversal in thi...

In New York State, any program to curb climate change by limiting carbon emissions has to be funded with identifiable and recurring revenue sources including property taxes or energy rates.
