Errol Louis: a defense of MetroTech, weak math, and the walls of the ghetto

Atlantic Yards Report

Who knows why Errol Louis plays fast and loose with the facts when he knows that "the Mad Overkiller" (Louis's moniker for Norman Oder) reads faster than a speeding bullet, is more powerful than a logo-missive and is able to leap tall tales in a single bound.

Errol Louis, in his August 1 column in the black-oriented Our Time Press, continues his staunch support for the Atlantic Yards project, his badmouthing of opponents, and his casual relationship to facts.

The first segment of his Commerce and Community column is headlined Endgame at Atlantic Yards. I've already discussed some errors in both this column and his most-recent Daily News column, but some choice lines still deserve response.

Oder takes a hard look at Louis's defense of eminent domain, MetroTech and claims about affordable housing and jobs.
