    Maybe this is a good opportunity to realize the sky isn’t going to fall if the Viaduct is not there, people will get where they need to go without too much trouble- no, wait, the tunnel is desperately needed! The Times says so it must be true!


    The sky IS falling. Haven’t you looked outside? What with our newest selected bicycle czar we should all prepare for the continued jihad on autos as well.  


    The only thing falling is your IQ.
