Congratulations Team USA, you certainly deserve this honor but without the baggage.
As the parade is set for this Friday in the Canyon of Heroes, it is our understanding that Open Loop NYC, the scofflaw tour bus company, has been invited to participate in the parade, that is, not withstanding their open violations of the industry, a source has indicated.
Here they are, ready for the triumphant spotlight in a historic ticker tape parade, but here’s the inside scoop: Open Loop NYC does not have the legal authority to make all but one stop (see our FOILED documents from the DOT), however Open Loop makes over 40+ stops which are listed openly on their website; and now NYC is going to openly embrace them to participate in this operation?
Mr. Mayor, we love you. But today’s newspaper has you worried about hiring an individual to become a liaison to empower NYC on a national level, in the meantime you sit by and watch how a foreign government doesn’t comply with NYC laws and is putting small business out of work and now you honor Open Loop by allowing them to participate in the parade? Shame!
Mr. Mayor, there’s a lot of your initiatives we approve of, whether it’s universal pre-k or standing up for the poor and downtrodden, but how for the life of you can you allow someone to abuse the system in such a blatant manner, and yet your commissioners – who have all been notified – do nothing about it?
What’s up with that?
