(sigh) And the Transit Bonds ballot measure passes.

Voters Approve Transit Bonds for $2.9 Billion - New York Times

Among other things, it rewards the most inefficient public transportation authority in the nation with at least half of the allocated $2.9 billion, saddling the citizens of the State of New York with a staggering debt burden, and best of all from the point of view of today's MTA honchos and city and state politicians, sticking our children with most of the bill.

Oh, if only my absentee ballot had arrived on time!
