Best comment to an article of all time.

While reading about Pete Buttigieg's remakrs regarding infrastructure, I followed a link to an article about Robert Moses. One comment there caught my eye.

1. This so reminds me of A Confederacy of Dunces -- made me smile

That's got to be Ignatius J. Reilly speaking.

3. Hard to figure whether this is praising Robert Moses or damning him.

It does criticize Robert Caro who wrote an excellent biography on Moses. He also wrote an excellent biography (multiple volumes) on LBJ. I think it was on Moses that Caro observed: "We're taught Lord Acton's axiom: all power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. I believed that when I started these books, but I don't believe it's always true any more. Power doesn't always corrupt. Power can cleanse. What I believe is always true about power is that power always reveals."

And what it revealed about Moses is why he built the bridges across Long Island parkways so low—so that buses from NYC could not fit under them and bring Black and Brown people out from NYC to his precious Jones Beach and other public facilities on Long Island.

Moses was a power hungry bastard and accrued much of it though the millions in tolls collected by the NY/NJ Bridge and Tunnel Authority, which he headed. He not only built the bridges and tunnels, he also carved up and destroyed many long-established neighborhoods by running espressways and parkways through them and thereby totally disrupting millions of lives. And of course he made sure none of those roads were built through wealthy areas.

5. Thanks for letting me know

I now am going to not read it any closer than my quick glance.

Difficult to really enjoy reading something that has random capitalization going on like that, wonder if I’m the only one. No paragraphs, no flow. Am I too old to really appreciate the whole “stream of consciousness” rambles like this?

6. Glad to help

Slogging through that mess would be the equivalent of trying to decipher Minoan Linear A or Etruscan.
