Bloomberg and Black Ring In The New Year
Times Square, New Year's Eve, 2011 - Bloomberg kisses Cathie Black at the stroke of midnight.
It's nice to see that Bloomberg harbors no ill feelings toward the woman who not only wasn't able to fire half of all New York City teachers - as the mayor wanted - but couldn't even save her own chancellorship.
The nice thing is, she landed on her face, er, feet in the Hamptons, re-emerged in New York City society with a splendid party she gave late last year that the mayor himself attended, showed up in Zuccotti Park to support Occupy Wall Street (or to just take a break from, uh, driving), got help from the Bloomberg administration in keeping her emails secret, and helped ring in the New Year dressed as Lady Gaga in Times Square last night.
She's really turned things around, hasn't she?
Why just last year she was the laughing stock of the city (except for all those kids, parents and teachers who had to deal with her crazy policy initiatives like dealing with school overcrowding by forcing stringent birth control onto people in various neighborhoods...)
Now she's back on stage looking so splendid that even the NY Post is raving about her.
Heck, let's give that woman a value-added "highly effective" bonus.
She's really adding value to this city.
Or if not that, at least this blog.
