Poor Mayor Bloomy...nothing ever goes his way. First bike stolen from NYC share scheme before the official launch as program gets off to a wobbly start | Mail Online
The article says it's a privately funded program. Solyndra was privately funded until it became the taxpayers problem. I wonder if this will become our problem before it's all said and done?
Pardon my cynicism.

I think the program is a good idea and do hope it succeeds. To many lazy fat people out there. We visited NYC a few years ago. Except for getting back to the airport we never took a bus or taxi. We hoofed it from one end of Manhatten to the other.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
Gee, another Big Brother Bloomberg idea thats not worth spit.
I wonder what the grand total will be before this is over with.
I would hope that at $825 they have some kind of GPS/Lojack devicw on them.
I agree that there are too many fat people but I bet not one of them will be using these bicycles. If I'm wrong I promise to join that spinning class at the gym I've been studiously avoiding.
The "problem" with any social programme like this would be the criminals who will take things no matter what. There is always someone out there looking to steal anything, that is the problem, not the programme.
We have an epidemic of crime not only in NYC but all over the country with no way to stop it or keep a lid clamped down on it. Not surprised that a theft occurred even before this thing got going.
There are too many out there who feel entitled to everything and anything no matter if it is given to them or provided. They are parasites sucking the system dry and one day it will all be gone. That is our problem.
