It’s not just your imagination, guys: A new report released by the MTA reveals that the subways are getting more and more crowded, and that’s causing a major uptick in delays. The New York Post reports that weekday trains were delayed a total of 14,843 times in December 2014 owing to overcrowding, a 113 percent increase from December 2013. And though some weekend service did improve, the weekday on-time performance of every single line decreased between 2013 and 2014, resulting in weekday trains running late 7.9 percent more frequently than last year. Better get out while you still can.
Post-manual-recount Florida Senate **official** election results: Rick Scott (R) defeats Bill Nelson (D) by 10,033 votes.
The manual recount actually shifted the margin by 2,570 votes, which is more than twice as many as the previous record recount shift this century. The fact that Florida is a huge state helps, but that’s certainly notable.
25,543 fewer votes were cast in the Florida Senate race than governor’s race in Broward County. It’s possible—though by no means certain—that bad ballot design cost Bill Nelson his seat.
