No bigger trucks

Ever grumble about the ludicrous massiveness of the box your little shipping order was packed in? Fed Ex etc.. are pushing for equally ludicrous 90-foot double-length semi-trucks for hauling the increased amount of all that packaging, plastic-encased air – and junk.

Sign of the times

When it comes to a revenue shortfall, the politicians in Nassau can either make the hard choices or come up with weird stuff like revenue-generating electronic billboards on the LIE. Though most people on the LIE would actually have to look up from their text messages and Facebook updates to notice them. (I should note that I had so much fun playing around with Nassau County billboard messages that Newsday will put up a version of the cartoon with no words on it so you too can have a stab at a sign message. Look for that!)
