MrJeff2000 Explains It All It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, um what was I talking about again?

The MTA just enacted another fare hike.

There was immediate, understandable protest.

But this is a broken record and an indefensible system.

Nothing excites weather people more than a "weather event."

And a big one was expected this past week.

In some ways, it disappointed. In others, not as much.

Took my kids on a trip to Denver this past weekend.

Here are some stories of our travels.

I picked up 1,400 books this week to sell in December as part of my temple's annual Bazaar.

The book sale routinely gathers collectors and dealers who spend three days going through beteween 20,000 and 40,000 books.

With my involvement, the organizers are hoping to get closer to 40,000. And if they continue to work me like the past few weeks, they might just reach that goal.

The CitiBike program is expanding into upper Manhattan and areas of Brooklyn.

Staten Island feels ignored, but then again, it wouldn't be Staten Island otherwise.

The 2nd Avenue Subway expansion (part one) has attracted riders. But will it ever get to Part 2?

Finally, board games are making a comeback in the Digital Age.

If you believe Donald Trump is going to be a good President, this isn't the podcast for you to listen to.

Donald Trump is a venal, awful person, a lousy failed businessman, and a disgusting human being.

In this episode, I outline some of the more recent, egregious incidents of late from his planned administration.

The MTA announced a bunch of new projects that will revolutionize transportation around New York City and its surrounding boroughs.

More than $27 billion (with a B) for new subway cars, a refurbished LaGuardia Airport, a system to replace MetroCards, and a streetcar system to connect Brookly and Queens residents are being discussed.

And I am surprisingly fine with all of it.

Hate crimes are on the rise 35 percent on mass transit in NYC since the election.

I witnessed a possible incident this past week.

Yet it did not draw any discernible reaction from commuters.

Are we all hardened to the treatment of our fellow man, or are we just hardended in our resolve to be left alone as we transport ourselves?

Yes, I know there was an election this week.

In the meantime, let's talk about illegally rented AirBnB apartments and a woman with a crazy number of driver's license suspensions.

So the verdict came in shortly after my last true crime podcast and the defendant was found....well, real guilty.

Also, some talk about the environment and why it's worth five cents per one-use bag to help clean up the planet.
