"One of the more interesting recent stories of government absurdity is New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg's decree that starting in 2013, the Nissan NV200 minivan will become the official taxi of the city. Over the next five years, all other models will be phased out. In addition to illustrating the corrupting effects of political power, the episode underscores the economic problems of government ownership of roads." (05/12/11)
