Feds see N.Y. traffic fixes as roadmap for nation
The view is: If you can fix traffic here, you can fix it anywhere

Peters has also dangled $354 million to the city if it goes ahead with a congestion pricing plan to reduce auto traffic by charging tolls to drive into the busiest parts of Manhattan at peak times.  :o


and id say LA or Houston is a better guinea pig.  Most cities dont have the subways/trains NY does, and most never will.

The next generation to enter the work force may be more likely to cheat and lie than their more senior colleagues, according to a recent survey.

Three-quarters of teenagers believe they are fully prepared to make ethical decisions, yet nearly 40 percent also believe lying, cheating or violence are necessary to succeed, according to the survey conducted by Junior Achievement Worldwide.

More than half of those teens said their personal desire to succeed is the rationale. There were 23 percent who said violence toward another person is acceptable on some level.

The number of teens willing to bend the rules has more than doubled since 2003, according to Ainar Aijala, chairman of Junior Achievement Worldwide.

"Kids are seeing evidence of successful politicians, professional athletes, religious leaders, lawyers and business professionals being dishonest people they also see as their role models," Aijala said.

Court documents filed this week by the FBI state that Laurean, 21, told members of his Marine Corps unit he would flee to Mexico if it appeared he would be found guilty of rape. Laurean's wife also told authorities she believed he would head to Mexico if he was in trouble.



now, why didnt these marines inform their superiors of this?!?!?!  >:(

im all for immigration

and if they REALLY wanted to stop illegal border crossings, they wouldn't waste money on a fence.  they would use land mines.  illegal crossings would stop the next day.
