A Few of Their Favorite “Things”

Spitzer stepped (slithered?) away from his position as governor, and there, too, went Michael Bloomberg’s ally in congestion pricing. In steps (?) David Paterson, and god only knows if he’s given this issue an ounce of thought since he landed in Albany.

Money quote:

“The mayor, I was surprised, is very compassionate about congestion pricing — he really seems to have a thing for congestion pricing,” Mr. Paterson told the crush of waiting reporters. “Is that a good idea? Can it actually be implemented?” he continued, promising to review what he called Mr. Bloomberg’s “very persuasive argument” with Albany leaders.

That first part is bit derisive, if you ask me. Yes, the mayor has a “thing” for congestion pricing. We all have our “thing,” right? Even David Paterson has his “thing,” as we learned this week. Except Bloomberg’s “thing” is so badly needed, so long overdue (you know how that is), that for it to slip away at this time, simply because our new governor is not up to speed on how to maneuver through the muck of Albany, is going to be one of the biggest crimes in this whole Spitzer scandal when all is said and done.
