There is a disconnect between the issues that the newspapers and broadcast outlets have put on the front burners and those that are really important to voters.
Look at the West Side stadium proposal for the Jets and the Olympics that we don’t yet have and are unlikely to get.This issue has dominated the news and the campaign. But where I live, in Riverdale in the northwest Bronx, there is no visible evidence that anyone cares. I have yet to meet an ordinary resident who is outraged, one way or the other.
