Guess what's missing from the $4 billion dollar redesign of La Guardia Airport?


Governor Andrew Cuomo annnounced that four billions dollars were going to be spent redesigning New York's La Guardia Airport.

La Guardia Airport, whose dilapidated terminals and long, unenviable record of traveler delays have made it a target of jokes and complaints for decades, will be completely rebuilt by 2021, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York announced on Monday.

So far this year, La Guardia ranked last among the 29 largest American airports in on-time departures, with slightly more than 70 percent of its flights counted as on time, according to the federalBureau of Transportation Statistics.

The main problem is "traveler delays". Remember that.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the airport in northern Queens, estimates the overhaul will cost about $4 billion, most of which will go toward tearing down the Central Terminal Building, rebuilding it in place and augmenting it with a grand entry way.

The governor said the project would create 8,000 construction jobs and additional permanent jobs in the expanded airport, which would have more stores, restaurants and possibly even a conference center and a hotel.

What does this have to do with reducing traveler delays? Nothing! The problem is that La Guardia has only two runways (though it used to have four). La Guardia is on the bay. If they had wanted to really solve this problem, they would reclaim a small sliver of the bay on two sides of the airport and make two additional runways. That would have solved the problem of the delays.
But taking even a few hundred square feet of the bay would have incurred the wrath of environmentalists, a constituency that Cuomo is in thrall of.

Instead it's much easier for him to spend pointless billions to please powerful labor unions and big real estate interests. Politicians are like the Pharoahs of Ancient Egypt. They like to build big monuments to themselves. The Egyptians built large pyramids, and the politicians take thousands of tons of glass, metal, and concrete and build big buildings and airport terminals. How nice for them, how wasteful for us.

The other problem is that there is no direct rail link to Manhattan.

Travelers would also have better options to get to La Guardia; Mr. Cuomo said the plan called for a rail link between the airport and a subway station in the Willets Point section of Queens, as well as re-establishing ferry service to the airport.

Great. So passenger

16 year old girl forced to use girl's bathroom


The New York Times had a sob story about a 16 year old girl who is forced to use the girl's bathroom. She cut her hair short like a boy and took a boy's name ("Gavin"), but still they won't let her into the boy's bathroom. So, this being Obama's America, she is suing.

Whose fault is it really if blacks can't get cabs?


A former Obama pollster named Cornell Belcher comically wrote a Wash Po piece about how blacks have trouble getting cabs. I say "comically", not in reference to Belcher's last name, but to a relevation that forced the Wash Po to amend the article after its initial publication. It seems that Belcher, who wrote this piece critical of cab companies, was actually paid by cab-competitor Uber to do so, and Belcher never disclosed that fact to the Washington Post! But since he is an Obama supporter it was not seen as a major ethical problem.

NYT apologizes for saying Hillary was under investigation


The Public Editor of the New York Times, whose job it is to excuse the enormities found in the biased articles of the Times on a weekly basis, had, for once, the reverse of his usual task. Instead of explaining away a slanted article (which can be a full time job, if there are serious takers), the Public Editor was apologizing for the Times having "erroneously" reported that Hillary was under investigation for having classified information on her private email server.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also turned down Mike Lee and Ted Cruz's effort to defund Planned Parenthood.

The facts about Scott Walker's economic record


After one of Scott Walker's fundraisers called Donald Trump a "dumbdumb", Trump let lose on Walker, criticizing him for his spending, saying Walker borrowed money like crazy and turned a surplus into a deficit.
But to truly impartially evaluate Scott Walker's budgetary record, you need to a context to compare it to, namely the records of other governors. And so that's what I have done. If you look at the most recent years for which data is available, from 2013 to 2014, you can see that Scott Walker increased spending by five percent, year over year.
