Carbon Reduction Surcharge is pure horse sh--

We knew Ron Kaye would say it, but we absolutely must chime in:

The Mayor's Carbon Reduction Surcharge announced yesterday  is pure, unadulterated  horse shit.

Without the surcharge, the Bank of DWP, as PetraFried likes to call it, is fresh out of dough to launder and return to the City's cash-strapped General Fund come May 2010.

Simple as that.

Pretty clever to use the word "reduction" before the word "surcharge", though. Which of the Mayor's 173 personal staffers thought that one up? Tony should keep that one.
