The fearsome honey badger, here gaily narrated, will be the final animal in my “Month of Animals” entries.
Memorial Day finds me having just returned from Brown (perhaps some new Brown alums will Facebook-friend and Twitter-follow me – all are welcome). The combo of hippie-green politics and travel reminds of this New York Times blog entry noted by Rick Sincere, which criticizes the Brookings Institution (among “thinktanks gone wild”), and by extension nearly all mass transit-boosting studies, for ignoring whether anyone uses the damn public transit systems when they rank which systems are “good.”
This is exactly the kind of human-reality-ignoring move always feared by those of us wary of public-transit-loving planner-types. If the planners say you're predictable cattle, America, then dammit, act like cattle! Or get back in your car and drive quickly away from the socialists of all parties, racing toward your individual destiny like the fearsome honey badger.
And for more socialist-bashing, HEAR MY SPEECH AT THE NYC JUNTO, THIS THURSDAY (7pm) at 20 W. 44th.
