    And there's already a $2B hole for next fiscal year.

    New york is a nice play to visit once in your life or maybe even live for a short time but it would get old fast im sure.

    there is no crisis and 20 years is a long time for the inmates not to be in charge of the assylum. Also, teensy-tiny electorate (less than a million voters will decide this, possibly a lot less).

    It's time for NY once again to revert to being NY.

    I'd give up soda for another term of Bloomberg.

    Honestly, aside from a few specific incidents (like the soda bans), I think he's probably one of the better mayors we've had. To be fair, though, he doesn't have very strong competition for the honor of that title...

    I was at a thing last night where bloomberg was honored. He actually shook my hand, unbidden. So did George Pataki.

    Anyway, trek home was miserable because even in the middle of the night the humidity was still overwhelming. Sweat, sweat, sweat.

    Then, this morning, I learned that the second of our three approaches to the village and the train station has been blocked with the orange and white striped R2D2s. :fu:

    Manton, weather for the next few days is supposed to be gorgeous. You must be planning on leaving town.

    Came home from the city this morning. Paid my $7.50 off the FDR and got a receipt. This is new to me.

    I am with SH in disliking his busybody Davos class arogance and micromanagement, but I will gladly take him over any of the Dem clowns likely to win, and certainly over DeBlasio.

    I might, barely, be willing to live with another extension for the worthless City Council members if Bloomberg would run for a fourth term.
