OMG. New York City is going down, helplessly destroyed by "the driven, ideological passions of its leader" and "the totalitarians running this city" and the "all-powerful enterprise" of the bike lobby and "the best neighborhoods being begrimed by these blazing blue bikes" and "shocking" and "autocratic" and "dangers" and OMG other feverish ballistic stuff too. The Wall Street Journal posted this insane rant on the city's new bike-share program by editorial board member and venerable old wacko lady Dorothy Rabinowitz, who purports to speak "for the majority" - of what, she doesn't specify - which is really all you need to know about where the Wall Street Journal is at these days. Gotta watch the video.
