ETA??? The Universal App???
The squabbling reminds me of a conversation I had over a beer last year with former cab driver and Taxi Advisory Council member Bill Minikel (photo).
Bill said that the way cab companies were reacting to Uber reminded him of a science fiction movie where the earthlings were so involved fighting each other that they didn't notice a gargantuan space ship hovering above the earth about to wipe out civilization.
An even better analogy today. The invaders have already zapped half the planet and our fearless leaders still think that the only way to fight them is to pursue the same self-indulgent policies that attracted the aliens in the first place.
Divided and ready to be conquered.
