Manhattan is a rather low-lying island barely off the coast of the mainland of the United States. A great deal of its travel is done by tunnel and subway – which is naturally on a lower level than the island, itself. You’d think that someone would have looked in to the prospect of a storm surge causing flooding of the tunnels and subways and would have worked out a way to protect from flooding as well as a contingency plan for dealing with flooding.
So, what did I hear Mayor Bloomberg advise today? That people might want to walk in to New York City because it might be quicker than any other means.
On the other hand, Bloomberg has diligently seen to it that sodas are properly regulated in the city of New York.
This is what Big Government ultimately is – micromanaging things which aren’t a government responsibility, at all, while the things governments are supposed to do wither away.
