Jon Stewart claims there are picnic tables in 7th avenue. There aren't.
In Jon Stewart's schtick last night against Bloomberg's banning of soda containers over 16 oz (maybe I'll come back to that in a separate post), he said this:
"What are you doing? We already let you make up a third term as mayor, put cameras on every intersection and, for some reason, picnic tables in the middle of 7th avenue -- what the fuck is that?"Actually, there aren't picnic tables in the middle of 7th avenue. They're in the middle of Broadway. It's extremely different. The latter was, in fact, a brilliant idea, one that has worked extremely well. Kudos to Bloomberg for having the courage to do it.
It's too bad Stewart's take on the issue is similar to that of the New York Post.
