Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day, from Lt. David Gaynor, who oversees the stables in the Bronx where NYPD horses are tested and trained:

Daily maintenance? About $10 a day for hay, grain and bedding material. Sure beats the price of gas and they don't give off carbon monoxide.
Can't forget about the externalities though... the ones that get externalized out the rear end of the horse (and which the cops don't care even slightly about cleaning up). At least cars don't spread infection through their waste product.
Yeah, there was a comment in there that horse manure quickly dries out and blows away - "ewww" I don't want that sh*t blowing in my face no matter how dry it is.

But seriously, if each horse really takes another Crown Vic off the street, that's probably a good thing.
