    I forwarded the story to my cousin down yonder, across the border, who wrote back.

    He rights (intentional): “Aca creyeron que éramos como los Holandeses” ——Here, ‘they’ thought we were like the Dutch.

    They placed ‘communal’ bikes at the Plaza. The idea was to get people to ride the bikes on 7th Avenue; pick up a bike at the Plaza, and return it at Calle 26. “Obviously” the bikes were picked up, but never returned——not one was left. LOL

    Many stores went out of business, because people stopped going downtown.

    Interesting. It will take a cultural revolution. I guess we can ask the Chinese how that worked out.

      No cultural revolution required for Los Angeles County to convert to all electric cars. Seems if a Spanish city can ban cars, LA county could go electric. Their smog would be a thing of the past, and they would stop bugging the rest of us with their unworkable internal combustion emissions standards.
