Last weekend, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s transit riders and bridge and tunnel toll payers saw a fare hike — and drivers soon will have to pay a “congestion fee” to enter core Manhattan.

Jesus Was Not a Palestinian

Let’s set the record straight. Jesus was a Galilean Jew, not a Palestinian Muslim.
