I'm not sure how this caught fire and spread so quickly on Facebook and Twitter, because the whole point of the eavesdropping law revision was to remove language that made it a felony for any citizen to record a law enforcement officer on duty. It was that portion of the eavesdropping law that made it both unconstitutional and absurdly antiquated.
Sadly, the two-pronged grade-school defense of "Nu'Uh" and "But he did it, too" will probably carry the day come November. With corporations as citizens, with jean-clad CEOs as governors and with an amnesiac public convinced that their problems stem from the quickly vanishing middle class, what's a non-billionaire to do?
The sustainability perspective integrates economic growth, environmental protection and public health. I am confident that New York City's mayor and New York State's governor understand this. However, I see little evidence that they have integrated this way of thinking into their approach to politics, policy and governance.
