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

There were a full three pages of news about New York's Metropolitan Transit Authority today. So much information, in fact, that I could only talk about the first two pages.

I worked the polls for the June 25 special election for Queens DA (and a few judgeships).

Three separate files woven together into a series of semi-coherent thoughts about our democratic process in action.

Should I invest in equipment to do interviews? Would they add a new dimension to the podcast? Leave your thoughts on the podcast Facebook page (MrJeff2000 Explains It All).

Plus a really old news story about the delays to the East Side Access for the LIRR – which has STILL not been completed, even though this article is more than one year old!

This week I get a little testy talking about the NYC Department of Education.

Former Trump attorney/fixed Michael Cohen (no relation) testified before Congress and the Senate in three separate hearings this week. The most explosive session was the Wednesday open session, where there were many revelations. My blood didn't boil, but I was disappointed at a few things that did not happen.

The MTA is finally getting around to implementing safety installation measures on their new trains and they should be coming into service in 2018.

You did not misread that last sentence – it comes from an article in 2016.

Plus some other tales of MTA wackiness.

Two stories of local corruption, based on recklessness, entitlement, and insider connections.
