Bloomberg Finally Realizes Whom He Resembles

From the New York Post:

Call him the new Moses -- Robert Moses, that is.

Mayor Bloomberg says that since 9/11 he has tried to transform the city on a scale not seen since the days of the legendary and controversial master builder of highways, bridges and parks that changed the metropolitan landscape.

"I think if you look we've done more in the last seven years than -- I don't know if it's fair to say more than Moses did -- but I hope history will show the things we did made a lot more sense," Bloomberg tells The New Yorker.

Mike, we've been calling you the new Robert Moses for some time now.

Well at least he's acknowledging that what Moses did made little if any sense. Sure Bloomberg's very development friendly, but you don't see him tearing down neighborhoods to build mega-highways. Can you imagine the outcry of he were to suggest a LoMaX today?
