The war on the way we were

When I first heard that the newest mayor of New York’s first action in office was to denude the city of horse-drawn carriages, I thought it was probably a joke. I figured some card over at Fox News or The Wall Street Journal had taken an obscure quote out of context in order to start His Honor out on the wrong hoof.

Alas, Bill de Blasio actually is that stupid. Failing schools, unfunded pensions, and random violence are not at the top of his to-do list as one of the most prominent personages in the nation, if not the world.

De Blasio decries the horses’ treatment as inhumane.
